Campus Housing Leadership

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

All residence hall students are automatically members of the Residence Hall Association (RHA) by 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.

Hall Governments

Each hall is a self-governing unit within RHA and elects officers according to the respective hall constitutions. Officer elections are held on a hall-wide basis each Fall. 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 Life Coordinator early in the fall semester to get involved.

National Residence Hall Honorary

The NRHH is the premiere honorary supported by the leading international organization advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. NRHH strives to provide recognition for individuals who have contributed to the advancement of college and university housing. The chapter members represent the top 1% of the student leaders on campus and are those who have contributed extraordinary amounts of personal time and energy in order to make the residence halls more than a “dorm.”
