What Is The Residence Hall Association?
RHA is a student organization that represents the 3300+ students who live on campus in the residence halls.
What Does RHA Do?
RHA provides residents with an opportunity to unite for the betterment of all students attending Eastern Michigan University. This unity is achieved through awareness, social programming, leadership opportunities, and lasting friendships. RHA also provides residents with a structured outlet for communications when university staff and administration render decisions.
How Does RHA Work?
RHA consists of 2 levels of government:
The first level, the Executive Board, oversees and provides programming for all residence halls.
The second level encompasses 9 community councils, each consisting of an executive board. Community council executive board work to provide creative programming and equal representation for their residents.
Both levels of RHA unite at the General Assembly, where the RHA Executive Board and Community Council Presidents, resident students and guests convene to address campus issues and formulate comprehensive programming. These meetings are at 4:00pm on Tuesdays in the Student Center.
How Do I Get Involved?
Living in the residence halls automatically makes you a member of RHA. Many different leadership opportunities are available at both levels of government.
