Resident Coordinators

Sweet Briar College has three resident coordinators who live in campus housing and serve as professional staff on call. Our RCs have extensive experience at Sweet Briar and with college students, and are eager to mentor and support students. They directly supervise resident advisors.

  • Debbie Thomas: Manson, Carson, Randolph, House 5
  • Celeste Noble: Meta Glass, Green Village
  • Hayley Kirby: Dew, Grammar, Reid

Resident Advisors

Each residence hall has at least two upper-class students who serve the campus community as a resident advisor. RAs are required to participate in extensive fall and spring training as well as weekly in-services. The RA staff is ready to provide support to residents regarding homesickness, academic stress, anxiety, first aid and to help make connections with campus resources.

RAs are on call each night to assist students with issues that might arise outside of normal business hours. The RA on-call number is available from your RA.
