The Residence Hall Association is composed of 10 Hall Councils - each for an area consisting of between 250 and 1,000 residents. Hall Councils organize social activities in its area, and serve the needs of its residents. Each Hall Council consists of a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, 2,3, or 4 Senators depending on size, and a Mayor for every RA. The Hall Councils are elected in the first two weeks of the Fall Semester, and they enter office immediately.
The Governor organizes the work of the Hall Council runs Hall Council meetings, and attends Board of Governors meetings with governors from other areas and the RHA President.
The Lieutenant Governor is in charge of Hall Council's budget and advertisement, and replaces the Governor if he/she is unable to perform their duties.
The Senators help organize area wide programs, attend general RHA meetings, and form part of an RHA committee.
The Mayors help their RA out with programs and bulletin boards, and help their hall council organize events.
Our governing body is composed of 30 senators, representing 5,800 residents and an executive board that consists of the President, Vice President, National Communications Coordinator, Director of Programming, Director of Finance, and Director of Public Relations and Records. The executive board is elected in the spring, and enters office the following year.
