THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN RHA ELECTIONS!

Are you interested in student government? Are you looking to gain valuable leadership experience? Look no further! RHA Elections are rapidly approaching and you may be eligible to run for a position! Learn more about how you can get involved in the residence halls' governing body below.

What is RHA?

The Residential Housing Association (RHA) is an Office of Student Life registered organization whose members are all residents in the Residence Halls. The governing body is composed of one Council per Residence Hall and a Coordinating Board at the top. With over 350 students in Hall Councils or the Coordinating Board, RHA is one of the best ways to get involved on campus. Every member pays an activity fee which is used for social, educational, cultural, and recreational programming, and to advocate the residential community's interests  to the campus community at large. It is our mission to "put the unity in community!" To learn more of RHA's structure and laws, read our Constitution and By-Laws, which can be found on this website!
Remember that WE represent YOU, so take the time to get to know us and voice your opinions and concerns.
