If you are interested in holding a student leadership position, there are several ways to do so that are sponsored by HRL. Following are organizations in which you can get involved, hold leadership positions and begin to build a resume while a student on campus.
National Residence Hall Honorary is a service of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Inc. (NACURH). It is designed to give local, regional, and national recognition to students making outstanding contributions to their residence halls.
Realizing the value of participation, students have contributed vast amounts of their personal time in an effort to make their own college experiences more meaningful to them. This effort not only benefits them but their entire residence hall system.
NRHH exists to honor these students. These people work hard and all too often go unnoticed without even so much as a thank you. That is the fundamental purpose of an NRHH Chapter. NRHH is the only nationwide organization that recognizes residence hall leaders. Membership in local chapters is limited to one percent of a school’s residence hall population, or 15 members, whichever is larger. It is very select group of leaders being selected is an honor in which one can take a great amount of pride.
The History of Kappa Gamma Mu
The chapter of NRHH at UNCG had been present for quite some time, but it was not until 2008 that the name Kappa Gamma Mu was selected. During the 2008-2009 academic year, a major rebuilding year, the students in the chapter wanted it to be prominent around campus and within the state and region.
They also wanted it to be a Greek letter organization but not to spell out RHA as some of the sister chapters have done. These members brainstormed and came up with the first letters of the ladies who were on the executive board at the time…which is what you see today…the initials of the ladies who got the organization back up and running and who were also a part of the initial conception of the organization.
Today our chapter strives to be active within the UNCG and Greensboro communities. It is through service, leadership, scholarship, and recognition that our members make a difference on their community.
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) of The University of North Carolina Greensboro is a student organization that was established in 1984. The purpose of this organization is to govern the Residence Hall Councils on campus and to promote the community of residential students at UNCG. RHA is sponsored by the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
RHA serves as a communication line for residential students to meet other residents from the various residence halls on campus, as well as across the state and nation. It is a way for students to become actively involved in the residential community. They develop leadership skills, communicate ideas, voice the opinions and concerns of their respective halls, plan both hall and campus activities, and make sure that students have a voice on the policies and issues that affect them.
RHA meetings are held every Monday at 7 p.m. in the Shaw Multipurpose room. See your CRL or RHA representative for more information, or visit the RHA website.
Hall Council Executive Positions
Hall Council representatives listen to the concerns of students living in the residence halls and work to improve the quality of life on campus. Their goal is to promote a sense of community pride in the residence hall and to plan activities designed to generate involvement. Hall Council is the first group on campus to allow freshmen to hold executive positions. They are the voice of the students they represent. Find out how to join at interest meetings held in your residence hall.
Timeline: Elections are generally held in August with elections on August 30-31. Emails will be sent out to each residence hall the first week of classes with specifics.
