Your Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a great way to get involved on campus, navigate campus resources, and meet new people to make a positive impact in your community.
We’ll be holding information sessions on September 4th at 6pm in every hall – you’ll be able to find out more about the process and meet your advisor here.
Elections will be held on September 11th at 6pm in your hall. At this time, you’ll have the opportunity to give a 2 minute speech about why you want this position. Elections will run for 1 full week. All elected Executive Board members will participate in a retreat the weekend of the 13-15th to prepare for their positions.
The first RHA meeting will take place on September 18th in your hall. All residents are welcome to attend their respective RHA community meetings to give input on programming or voice concern about their living area and campus life.
