Leadership and Involvement Opportunities
Each residence hall has a governing body comprised of students from their respective hall. A portion of the residence hall activity fee is allocated to each hall government to be used for programming and hall enhancements. Students who are involved in hall government receive valuable leadership skills and a voice in making decisions about their living environment.
Students wishing to apply for hall government positions in their residence hall should complete the online applications (available between July 1 and September 1).
Residence Hall Association (RHA)
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is comprised of two representatives from each of the hall governments and an elected executive board. This group meets weekly to discuss policy, events in the halls and to plan campus wide activities which involve all residence halls. The opportunity to become involved at regional and national levels is also available, as RHA is a member of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) and resides in the Midwest (MACURH) region. Students can run for regional and national positions and can also have the unique experience of hosting conferences for this organization.
