Join Hall Council

RHA is currently accepting applications for Hall Council Members within each Residence Hall:

What do Hall Councils do?

Hall Councils consist of a Hall Council Chair, Hall Council Admin, and several general body Hall Council Members. All Hall Councils are responsible for meeting twice a month, (1 council meeting and 1 town hall), hosting at least 1 community social and establishing 1-2 initiatives to work towards throughout the school year that are specific to their building’s needs. These initiatives can be as simple as getting new ping-pong paddles for your community game room, or as complex as designating a new study lounge in your building. Each Hall Council will be advised by the building’s Residence Hall Director.

What does the RHA Executive Board do?

The RHA Executive Board will be made up of each Hall Council Chair from every Residence Hall and will meet monthly. The RHA Exec Board will hold 1 campus-wide social and establish 2 initiatives of their own that will make an impact across campus in each residence hall. Some examples of past RHA initiatives are Water Bottle Refill Stations and Free Laundry in every residence hall. As a part of their initiatives, RHA Exec Board will also have the chance to work with the Department of Residence Life to initiate policy changes such as visitation/guest check-in, Quiet Hours, etc.
