Residence Hall Association
Don't just live, lead!
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student-led organization that seeks to train leaders to represent their communities in advocating for the betterment of the residence halls. All students living within the residence halls have voting rights on how community funds are spent and may exercise these rights within their community through the RHA. Additionally, RHA is a programming and leadership development group that plans large-scale programs for students.
RHA and community leaders meet every Monday night at 6 p.m. in the Trout Room by the 24-Hour Information Desk located in the LLCs.
