Resident Assistants (RAs)

Resident Assistants (RAs) work for Residence Services and team up with the Executive team to develop events and programs in HUB.  Each RA is also designated to a particular zone in HUB as a resource to the residents of that zone.  RAs take turns being "on-call" for after-hours issues and emergencies.

For information about HUB or UofA programs and services, or to get involved in the community, please feel free to contact your zone RA.  If you are experiencing an urgent issue (eg. lockout, noise complaint, maintenance issue, personal emergency, etc.) please contact the RA On-Call at 780-619-6244 instead of trying to get ahold of your specific zone RA.

I’m a big foodie, I love trying new food places and cooking. If you know of a good place then definitely let me know because I would love to check it out! I’m also a big fan of tv shows and it doesn’t matter how hectic school gets, I always stay on top of every show!

Senior RA - Doug Bennet

Hey there! My name is Doug and I'm in the last year of my undergraduate degree at the UofA. I'm studying Psychology with a minor in Music. I previously had a blast completing a two-year program in guitar performance and composition at Grant MacEwan. I began my time in residence as an RA for Schaffer Hall in Lister, and I'm super excited to be the SRA for HUB in the coming year!

In my spare time, I teach stress reduction through meditation as the president of the Mindfulness Meditation Student Group on campus. I love to play guitar, write, and do some computer programming in my spare time, but I'm always trying new things. 

I'm excited to pursue a career as a psychologist, and I'm passionate about using my own experiences with mental illness to help others find their own paths towards greater happiness and well-being.
