Each residence hall has its very own hall council.
The hall council is the governing body of the residence hall and each resident has an opportunity to be apart of it. There is a position for every one, every major, every personality type, and every work load amount. The positions available are:
- Vice President
- Chair of Administration
- Chair of Programming
- Chair of Marketing
- Chair of Recognition and Service
- Floor/Building Representatives
Hall councils engage in their residential communities by advocating for students, planning programs, participating in community service, and supporting various philanthropies. hall councils vary in size, but all have the same core values – to serve residents.
Elections begin early in the Fall semester where candidates can campaign for their positions and then are elected by their peers. Those appointed to their hall council’s will be inducted during a formal ceremony and attend a training session in the week following elections. Each council typically meets weekly or biweekly to plan events, discuss general assembly topics, and voice their opinions.
In addition to hall activities, each hall council also sends a representative to represent the hall as part of the RHA General Assembly. These representatives attend weekly meetings, which are open to ALL students and take place every Monday at 7pm in Shaw residence hall in the Tillman-Smart Room.
