The Residence Halls offer many opportunities for involvement and leadership. On a weekly basis you can find small- and large-scale events, ranging from Hunger Game tournaments, to glow in the dark volleyball, to movie nights. Within the residence halls we provide over 135 leadership positions. Residence Hall life is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where you will build character, create memories, develop as an individual and form lifelong friendships. Learn about our student government and get involved!
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.
Each residence hall has a community council made up of a President, Vice President, RHA Senator, and Programming Chair. Each community also has Hall/Floor Representatives. These councils provide a variety of services and programming opportunities for residents. Their goal is to plan social activities and work towards improving amenities and services within their communities. Community Councils report to the RHA and are great ways to get involved and lead while living on campus. You will receive information on your Community Councils and opportunities for involvement once you move into the residence halls.
