What is RHA?
The Residence Halls Association (RHA) is a student-run organization made-up of SEMO’s on-campus population. So, if you live on campus, congratulations, you’re a member!
What do we do?
- Provide a unified voice for students living in University housing
- Participate in University and Residence Life policy-making
- Encourage and facilitate inter-hall cooperation and engagement
- Discuss concerns and advocate for improvements in residence halls
- Develop programing to improve physical, educational, social, and cultural standards of living in the residence halls.
General Body Meetings
General Body meetings are a weekly meeting between the voting and non-voting representatives of each residence hall run by the executive board. Everyone is free to attend any of these meetings.
The philanthropy committee organizes and executes service-based projects and raises awareness for different causes. Examples are Ties for Hope and the Campus-Wide Cleanup.
Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Committee
The RRR committee aims to build connections within RHA, recognize achievements, and encourage students to join and return to RHA as well as make advertisements for programs, whether they’re RHA programs or programs for outside organizations. Advertisements include paper flyers, posters, chalking, etc.
The programming committee successfully plans and implements engaging, fun programs for Southeast’s on-campus population. Examples of programs are Splatterbeat, bowling, and bingo night.
The Funding Board reviews and discusses allocations as a team, interviews those requesting the allocations, and votes on whether allocations be passed and for what amount.
