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.
Summer 2013 RAs:

Hi! My name is Linying Cheng this is my fourth year at U of A, where I’m studying Economics and Psychology. I have lived in HUB and Namaste zone for two year, and I have gained a lot of exciting experiences by being a part of this big family. You will definitely find something you like here. If you have any questions about university or residence life, please don’t hesitate to ask me (email@example.com)-- I’ll try my best to answer your questions, help you solve any problems you may have, and be a friendly person in the community that you can count on! :)
Hi! My name is Kevin Hwang and I am the RA of Konnichiwa Zone :) This is my second year at U of A, and I am majoring in Biology. I love hanging out and socializing, so please feel free to talk to me. If you ever have questions about anything or just need someone to talk to, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m also always open to new fun things to try, so email me if you just want someone to hang out with! I’m looking forward to seeing you.
Hi! My name is Xiaohe Xue/Haley. I am the Resident Assistant (RA) of Aloha Zone and Nihao Zone. I just finished my second year in the Faculty of Arts with a major in Arts and Design and a minor in Sociology. I love drawing, swimming and hanging out with friends and residents. So don't feel shy. ;) I often email you guys about the fun things I want you to join with me. Also I am a big fan of Animation and movies so if you like them we will definitely become good friends! So far I have lived in HUB for two and half years and the best parts of being here are the great events and the friendly people living here. I hope you enjoy living in HUB as well and I am looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
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.
If you ever want to chat about anything at all, feel free to send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hey! My name is Ravina Grewal and I am honoured to welcome you to HUB as your Resident Assistant (RA) for both the Kia Ora Zone and the Hola Zone. In the upcoming fall I’ll be entering my third year in my pursuit of a BSc. I’m originally from Toronto but decided to attend the University of Alberta because I thought it would be an interesting experience. Therefore I know how hard it is to move out from our comfort zones and into the unknown.
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! And last but not least I love to laugh and make others laugh, so you can recognize me because I always have a smile on my face!
In short, I sincerely promise that if you ever need to talk for personal or academic reasons, I’m more than happy to go out of my way to chat with you so feel free email me email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Hello Hub-ites!!! My name is Yusra and I am a Resident Assistant for both Guten Tag and Jambo zones in HUB this lovely summer. I have been an RA in HUB in the previous year and have absolutely loved it, so I am looking forward to a great summer meeting all you people in person and hopefully enjoying some awesome summer activities together!
To tell you a little bit about myself, I am currently in my third year of undergraduate studies in the Faculty of Science and hoping to transfer into a social work program. I am a nature lover so I like to spend my spare time outdoors, walking in the river valley, meditating or hanging around with other HUB Residents in the Vault. I am always up to learn and try out cool new things and meet new people so always feel free to come and say Hi if you see me around, and I would love to learn more about you too! J
Also, if you ever have any questions, concerns or otherwise would just like to chat about any aspect of living in residence or student life in general, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ciao for now and see you around!
