RLSTs are trained listeners and mediators for students on their hall. They assist students in adjusting to life at ASMS and in dealing with roommate conflict. RLSTs help hall staff monitor bathroom duty and plan activities for their hall. They also help promote hall spirit and a sense of harmony and community throughout the dorms.
“The RLSTs play such a crucial role in helping students to transition to our ASMS community,” ASMS President Dr. Monica Motely says. “New students often struggle with issues, such as homesickness. RLSTs help students to develop hall pride and feel connected to the school through a variety of activities.”
RLST students must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA and recommendations from the ASMS community. The selection process includes a written application, an individual interview, and a group interview.
