What is Hall Government?

Each community on campus has a Hall Government dedicated to advocating for the needs and interests of that community, and planning events to socialize, learn about one another, and create a vibrant and inclusive living-learning community. 

Retreat 2015

Hall Governments exist in each hall or housing area.  These groups are elected by their residential community to act as representatives; to coordinate social and educational events for their community; to respond to needs and concerns of the community; and to monitor the hall budget.  Hall Govs are traditionally responsible for putting on community programs, facilitating community standards, and purchasing items for their living environments such as TVs, DVD/Blu Ray players, and microwaves. For 2019-2020, there are five Hall Govs divided amongst our first-year and continuing student communities as follows: Regester/Seward, Todd/Phibbs, Trimble and Smith/Oppenheimer, Anderson/Langdon, and Schiff/Harrington. 

Each Hall Gov is comprised of five executive members. Hall Gov executive members partake in a RHA sponsored retreat in September to learn all about their positions, how to put on programs in the hall, and other college  traditions. Throughout the year, the Hall Gov meets in their hall weekly with the support and guidance of the Resident Programming Advisor (RPA) of the area. All members of the hall are welcome to attend these meetings!
