"Being the Programming Coordinator I have to deal with a lot of planning and it has made me improve my organizational skills. Open and clear communication is something I've been able to improve in as well. I've also gotten to know many different members of the staff in Student Life & Student Affairs, and it's a good feeling knowing I have their support as we work together to make UWRF a fun place to be."
— Justina, Residence Hall Association member
We already know that your UWRF residence hall will become your home; however, it has the potential to be much more! If you choose, your residence hall experience may be an opportunity for involvement, leadership development, and service.
Do a little. Do a lot. Whatever you choose, we know that your hall organization experiences will be meaningful, fun, and as unique as the skills and personality you bring to them.
Each residence hall has its own Hall Council Board. Elected by the community members of the hall, these students are responsible for providing programs, spending funds raised by the hall through its fundraising efforts, and setting standards for hall space and equipment usage. If you are interested in being a part of your Hall Council, talk to your resident assistant or attend a regularly scheduled meeting. All meetings are open to hall community members.
Residence Hall Association (RHA) acts as the primary student governing body for residence hall policy, procedures, and decision-making. As the umbrella for all other Residence Life student organizations, RHA provides leadership by representing the voice of all on-campus students. Through RHA, students may get involved in a number of leadership positions, committees, or regional, local, and national leadership and conferences. All residents are encourage to attend RHA meetings and get involved.
The UWRF Chapter of NRHH believes that recognition of others is one of the most important facets of campus life. This organization is made up of the top 1% of student leaders in the residence halls. Its primary function is to recognize outstanding contributions to the residence halls.
