About the Conference

CASCHA’s annual conference for Resident Assistants & Future Student Affairs Professionals (formerly known as RAFSAP) occurs each fall. It is a networking and information-gathering opportunity for all resident assistants and student leaders interested in expanding their skills or learning more about the field of student affairs. The one-day conference includes a keynote speaker and program tracks for resident assistants, future student affairs professionals, and advisors. Students and advisors alike are invited and encouraged to present sessions!


The 2014 CASCHA Conference takes place on Saturday, October 25 at Loyola University Chicago.


Conference Banners

For this year’s CASCHA Conference, each institution is asked to create a banner for their institution. It’s time to get out your arts and craft supplies and get creative! These banners will be displayed the day of the conference and hung (taped to a wall with blue painter’s tape) during the Graduate School Fair.


Below are some guidelines for this competition: 


  • The banner must display your institution's name somewhere on it.
  • Size is limited to 3 feet x 5 feet.
  • Must be able to hang using painter’s tape (painter’s tape provided at Conference)
  • Must be turned in at registration or before 9:00 am the day of the Conference
  • Incorporation of Conference theme (“The Skyline’s the Limit”), school spirit/pride, and/or CASCHA in general is a definite PLUS!
