Residence Porters

Customer Service is a big part of their job, as they answer many questions and provide information to students and guests. They are responsible for logging information, signing guests in and out, and issuing bracelets. Porters are normally the first person who will contact security or emergency personnel if an emergency arises. Their collaboration with the Residence Life Leaders and all residents is key to ensuring a safe environment.
