Campus Housing Leadership
So you're finished moving in, now what? Be a leader!
Residence Hall Association (RHA)
All residence hall students are automatically members of the Residence Hall Association (RHA) by virtue of living in the residence halls and paying a $25/semester RHA fee. RHA represents residents’ concerns and provides educational, social, and recreational programs. As the liaison between residents and the administration, RHA promotes positive changes in residence hall policies. RHA is well known for programs such as “Welcome Week” fall socials, philanthropic projects, spring honors and awards banquet, and the annual “Hall Pride Week” held in January.
Each hall is a self-governing unit within RHA and elects officers according to the respective residence hall constitutions. Officer elections are held on a hall-wide basis. All of these positions provide the opportunity for students to serve in a leadership capacity in the hall, act as liaisons between students and the Office of Housing & Dining Services, and develop hall programs. Interested students should contact their Resident Assistant or Residence Director early in the fall semester to get involved.
National Residence Hall Honorary
The NRHH is the recognition organization for the residence halls because recognition is a must in a strong Residence Hall community. NRHH chapter membership is restricted to 1% of students living in the residence halls. So, once inducted into NRHH you can consider yourself a member of the Top 1% of residence hall leaders.
Apartment Council is a monthly meeting in which Apartment Community Staff meet with apartment residents to seek feedback concerning their living environment. This group looks for ideas for programming and provides a format for residents to offer ideas to improve the apartment community. These meetings will be announced in the apartment newsletter, “The Hurricane,” and is open to all apartment residents. Make your voice heard and come to these gatherings.
