Hall Council and the General Body
Get to Know Us
The RHA Executive Board governs and connects over nineteen hall councils through programming, spirit, conferences, workshops, general body meetings and more!
RHA aims to support residents with opportunities in leadership, community, growth and other core values. We want to help start your journey as a resident, a hall council member, a student leader and even a future RHA Executive Board Member.
What is Hall Council?
Hall Council is a group of elected residents who are in charge of representing their respective Residence Hall. After being elected, these residents will represent their hall in RHA General Body meetings and have the opportunity to vote on sponsorships, raise spirit points, learn about resources such as conferences, events, workshops and more to share with their Hall!
Hall Councils also have a budget provided by RHA and opportunity to hold program for their dorm. With the help of their Community Director, they can also request for larger amounts of budget to program campus-wide and get involved with other organizations and clubs on campus.
As a Hall Council member you have access to your hall's budget, RHA equipment, the aid and support of RHA Executive Board members and more!
How do I join?
During the first weeks of school, your community director and RA's will advertise Hall Council meetings and times for residents to meet up and learn more! If you are interested in learning about Hall Council before or after this time frame, feel free to reach out to the RHA Executive Board or any of your dorm staff to get involved! It's never too late to get involved!
Benefits of joining Hall Council!
