Residence Hall Association (RHA) is an organization of students interested in improving the overall quality of life within the Residence Life community. RHA is primarily a programming board, which serves the student residents by organizing various academic and social events throughout the year.
RHA also serving as a liaison between residence hall students and the Office of Residence Life, RHA provides input and recommendations regarding a variety of policies, supports departmental improvements, creates and promotes leadership development and growth, creates and reviews budgets affecting residence hall students, and assists in improving the quality of the on-campus living environment.
In addition to programming, RHA also offers students leadership opportunities, such as attending conferences.
Each student resident is a member of RHA, and all floors in Pike River Suites and Ranger Hall and all building in University Apartments have a representative.
Participation in programs by all residents is key to the development of a successful Residence Hall Community, so student residents are encouraged to get involved!
The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is the only nationwide organization that exclusively recognizes leaders in the residence halls. As an organization of the National Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH), each collegiate institution affiliated with NACURH and NRHH forms a chapter. One of NRHH's main goals is to give local, regional, and national recognition to students making outstanding contributions to their campus and residence halls. In addition, each chapter firmly believes in the value of student involvement in residence hall life through community service, community building, advocacy, and educational programming.
Realizing the value of participation, leaders have contributed vast amounts of their personal time in an effort to make their own college experiences more meaningful to them. This effort not only benefits them; it benefits their campus and entire residence hall system at their school as well. NRHH exists to honor these leaders. They work hard and all too often go unnoticed without even so much as a thank you. That is the fundamental purpose of an NRHH Chapter.
Membership in chapters is limited to 1% of your school's residence hall population, or 20 members, whichever is greater. NRHH is a very select group of leaders. Thus, being selected into the membership is an honor in which one can take a great amount of pride.
