As a member of our residential community, you are automatically a member of the Residence Life Association. This organization is the “official voice” of our on-campus residents and works closely with department leaders to promote a great residential experience. In addition to advising Residence Life on issues of policy and budget, RLA is a programming group. RLA annually sponsors/co-sponsors major events such as Week of Welcome, Homecoming, Spring Daze, etc. Additionally, it provides financial support to hall councils for social and educational programs and for a variety of community amenities. RLA also provides many leadership opportunities for residents such as becoming a Resident Advisor, Hall Council member, or judicial representative. Whether you just want to participate or really want to make a difference, plenty of opportunities are available.
