Residence Hall Association

RHA logo

A Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student run, residence hall governing body. Each residence hall will have one hall council made up of representatives from the residents living in the hall. The hall council will be able to give residents a chance to make a difference in their community. Each hall council will also gain feedback from residents about ways they wish to see their halls improved. Students in RHA will help put on large scale programs that residents would like to see occur in their areas and serve as the line of communication between residents and the Office of Residence Life. 

RHA positions that are available are:

  • Hall Council Senators
  • President
  • Vice President 
  • Treasurer/Secretary
  • National Communications Coordinator
  • Public Relations
Each position holds a requirement that the student must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and be in good conduct standing. If you are interested in more information please contact
