Undergraduate Staff

Each residence hall is under the leadership of undergraduate staff members, who are Assistant Residential Life Coordinators, Residence Coordinators, Community Advisors, House Leaders, or Resident Assistants. These staff members work with the Office of Residential Education to help develop and maintain an environment that promotes academic, personal, and social growth in the residence hall.

Wellness Dimensions

Here at Gettysburg College, wellness is intentional, active and always evolving. It is a set of skills and a state of being that is fostered through individual and collective engagement. Wellness is self-directed, holistic and interconnected with those around us and our environment.

Wellness is built upon a foundation of skills and habits that influence our identity and our sense of belonging. We believe that by actively engaging with these dimensions through opportunities provided during the college years our students learn, grow, and thrive in profound ways that have lasting impact.

Residential Education (ResEd), in partnership with other departments across campus, provides resources and educational opportunities for students that are framed by our seven dimensions of wellness.

Intellectual Wellness

Creating habits and mindsets that encourage critical thinking, analysis, problem solving, creative exploration, and a pursuit of knowledge.

Financial Wellness

Acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed decisions with financial resources.

Social Wellness

Understanding that we are interdependent while developing the skills necessary for cultivating and maintaining connection and to constructively work through conflict.

Emotional Wellness

Developing emotional self-awareness and skills to effectively express and manage emotions in a healthy manner.

Physical Wellness

Adopting and maintaining healthy habits for sleep, exercise, nutrition, sexual health, and substance use in addition to knowing how to access care when sick or to prevent illness and injury.

Cultural Wellness

Being knowledgeable, understanding and respectful of diversity through identifying and practicing one’s values, engaging in affirming experiences and contributing to a positive, inclusive environment.

Community Wellness

Engaging in the impactful relationship between person and environment by participating in acts of social responsibility, stewardship, and advocacy.
