A GA directly oversees the daily operation of one small residence hall, or co-supervises one suite-style building. This includes, but is not limited to, supervision of student staff employees, programming, enforcement of rules and regulations, and first-level counseling of students.

A GA receives a $5,000 stipend per academic year, 100% PA-state tuition waiver (up to 9 credits per semester) and a free furnished apartment with utilities.
