Transcript A Job To Do Making the halls a better place Located between Law and Bates Hall was the heart and soul of the university's dorm life — the Residence Halls Association (RHA). RHA was responsible for overseeing much of what went on in the university's residence halls. The members planned programming, provided information, created policies, reviewed food services and worked on improvements within the halls themselves. Getting students enthusiastic and happy about where they were living wasn't an easy task. It wasn't just done by telling the residents about the many opportunities on campus. In order to get the students excited, it was necessary to get them involved. There were dozens of ways for students to become part of RHA. In fact, every person living on campus was an automatic member, but in order to be classified as an active and contributing member, there were various things to do. RHA was comprised of many standing committees, each one overseeing an aspect of the residence halls. These included Improvements, Policies, Food Advisory and Communications. To join a specific committee and become a contributing member, one needed to contact the RHA office or committee chair. Another way to become involved was to be a floor representative, program board member or part of a building association. The rules and election procedures differed from hall to hall, but anyone could attend a program board meeting or talk to a Resident Advisor for information. The program board for each area did just what the name implied; it created social and educational programming for each area, or even for a combined all-area function. Some of the most successful functions included the Quad Program Board's bike trips, and parties on the roof of Oberholtzer Hall as well as the Towers' Program Board's talent show, toga party and the infamous "Forbidden Party." RHA also sponsored such major events such as Casino Night, Spring Weekend and Cougar ROAR. Before everything else, the most important part of RHA was trying to keep everyone happy, excited and informed. Throgh RHA, residents had the means to make the university residence halls a better place to live. -Stephanie Colston Always Busy.
