2020-21 Student Leadership

South Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (SAACURH) Regional Leadership Conference (RLC)

In November 2020, UNC Greensboro had the pleasure of hosting the South Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (SAACURH) Regional Leadership Conference (RLC). This is an annual leadership conference for students who are involved in residential student leadership programs such as Hall Council, NRHH, and RHA. Student Leaders from 10 states across the region come together each year to share what they have learned with each other, build community, and advocate to continue to better the residential student experience across the region. UNCG had the opportunity to host the first ever Virtual RLC for the region. We received numerous educational sessions and proposals and were ultimately able to offer 20 options for our attendees to choose over the course of the conference. Over 400 people from 41 institutions registered and joined us virtually for this experience.

Residence Hall Association

During the second semester in Spring 2021, RHA decided to focus its efforts on Soles 4 Souls where gently or new shoes would be turned into opportunities. Our Hall Council members were able to collect over 50 pairs of shoes in a month-long period. We were informed that in countries like Haiti, 50 pairs of shoes can provide food, shelter, and education for a family for up to a month (30 days).

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHHH)

This past Spring 2021 semester, the NRHH executive board members thought it would be a great idea to hold a food drive and paint rocks to beautify UNCG’s campus garden!

The food drive event, also known as “For the Love of Giving”, was held in February 2021, to provide NRHH members and other UNCG students with the opportunity to donate boxed and canned goods. This was such a heart-felt and generous way for students to give to those in need! The turnout was successful as we were able to donate a wagon full of donations! The Spartan Open Pantry was elated and grateful for our willingness to give back to our community.

As it pertains to the rock-painting event that was held in March 2021, NRHH decided to allow both NRHH and RHA members to paint rocks for the UNCG garden located on McIver Street. The co-advisor of the UNCG garden was in need of embellishments for the garden, so we were delightfully willing to contribute!

It was a fun time of fellowship amongst both organizations, getting to know one other, and a way to test our creativity! NRHH and RHA members painted such beautiful masterpieces that added exuberance to the garden! Both service events were executed safely and efficiently, as we met both goals of serving our community.
