Residence Hall Council

Hi guys!
I’m Leah, and I’m the current Residence Hall Association (RHA) president – I was VP last year, and it has been an awesome experience for me. Everyone involved in the organization is really enthusiastic about planning awesome events for the campus community, and we have put on some really successful programs. A few of my favorites were Terror Behind the Walls (a trip to the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia), The Hunger Games Premiere at the Promenade, and the Carnival, of course. Being a part of RHA has been a great leadership opportunity for me, and that leadership starts in the Residence Hall Councils (RHCs).
There are five positions available to run for in each residence area and these five people also work directly with the umbrella organization, RHA. This means they not only plan events for their own areas, but they have a say in the campus-wide events as well. I would totally recommend running for a position because it is a great way to get involved and meet your fellow leaders on campus!

Leah Paulson is a junior Global Studies and Spanish double major. Along with being the current RHA president, she is also on the Women’s Rowing team, a Gryphon in Campus Square, and a TA.

The positions available in each building area are:
Vice President
Programming Coordinator
