Hall Councils

Each residence hall has a Hall Council, comprised of students within the community and the Hall Council Advisor. All residents are encouraged to join Hall Council events or meetings. If you have any questions, please contact your Hall Council Advisor.

Hall Council is a group of students in a residence hall who:

  • coordinate monthly social events in the hall
  • manage a budget of $1,000 
  • create relationships among residents in the hall
  • engage in leadership development opportunities
  • represent and advocate for all residents on campus
  • establish open and honest communication within our residence halls
  • share feedback and recommendations to the Department of Residence Life

Any resident can join their Hall Council as a member to assist in planning and implementing events, gather feedback from community members, gain leadership experiences, and much more!
