2017-2018 Student Handbook


Residence Hall Programming


A program is an event designed to enhance your learning and development or help facilitate floor community. You will learn something new and have fun at the same time.   Sometimes these activities will happen spontaneously on your floor, and other times, your RA will plan an activity for your floor or hall.


Throughout the semester, programs will be presented on your individual floors, in the main lobbies, and in the Student Union. Many programs are already listed in this planner, but keep an eye out for program announcements in your community!



You will spend a great deal of time on your floor or in your residence hall, so it is important to become involved and connected. By attending programs, you will get to know the students in your hall and have a greater respect for your community.


Your FREE Residence Hall Association Membership starts the moment you check into the hall. The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student organization for all students living in the residence hall. RHA provides educational and social activities for residence hall students. Students are encouraged to get involved in leadership positions in RHA and also participate in the social activities and programs presented by RHA. Simply by living in your hall you are a member of RHA, so take advantage of all that is available. You can learn more about events and leadership opportunities by finding us on Facebook or visiting the RHA office on 3rd Petro Hall.
