Residence Hall Association (RHA)

    RHA is the residential governing student body whose purpose is to stimulate leadership and development through education, advocacy, and community growth. RHA is committed to creating a more enjoyable residential experience and developing an environment that is welcoming to all students that reside in the Woodlands Halls. RHA Executive Board elections are hosted at the end of every Spring semester. During this time you may follow the link this to find out more information about position descriptions and responsibilities.

Residence Hall Councils (RHC)

    Working with RHA, there is one RHC per Residential Hall. The RHC's meet weekly to address residency issues, plan events, participate in community service and coordinate other events in collaboration with RHA. RHC provides students with opportunities to develop and refine their leadership skills and work to enhance the residential students overall college experience through programming and support.  RHC Executive Board elections are hosted in the Fall semester in each individual hall. 

  • For more information on how to get involved or to run please contact your RHD in your building.
