Leadership Opportunities

Hall Councils

Each residence hall has its own Hall Council. 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 a resident is interested in being part of Hall Council they should talk to the HD or one of the hall RAs, or attend a regularly scheduled meeting. All meetings are open to hall community members.

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

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 participate in a number of leadership positions, committees or regional, local, and national leadership conferences. All residents are encouraged to attend RHA meetings and get involved.

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)

The UW-River Falls 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 through an "Of the Month" (OTM) award.
