As a residential student, you have a variety of opportunities for leadership and involvement. All are wonderful ways to meet people, build strong friendships, improve your community and just have fun!
Residence Hall Association
Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the student organization on campus that represents all of the resident students' needs. Meeting weekly to organize events and discuss issues that affect residents, this organization has a direct line of communication to residence life staff, Student Governing Board, the Food Committee, and other channels to create change in the halls.
RHA specifically targets resident students as the audience for their events. Suggestions are always welcome for these events. RHA has one of the largest budgets of any student organization, and they want to use it to make your experience living on campus better.
If you think you would like to be a part of this amazing group to make change around campus just email firstname.lastname@example.org
or stop by the Office of Residence Life to talk to the advisor.
A group of students meet with residence life and Sodexo food service staff for Food Committee meetings approximately 8 times each semester. The meetings consist of comments and criticism, both positive and negative, on each of the eating establishments on campus. The ambassadors include representative from the RAs, SGB, RHA, and students at large. The ambassadors represent the feelings and opinions of all students so feel free to get in touch with one to share your thoughts. Additionally you can send feedback on anything food or dining related to email@example.com
and it will be forwarded to an ambassador.
Membership of food committee is always under consideration. To become a Dining Ambassador contact us
