Transcript WORKING TOGETHER Members of the Residence Halls Association gather together for a meeting to discuss issues that concern UH residents. RECREATION Members of RHA listen to a speak- RHA members get away from the er discuss issues concerning the UH dorms for a relaxing game of residents. bowling. Photo hy Pin Li A5^Q^1#irtON RHA works to make students reel at home at the University or Houston "Residents serving residents" is more than just a slogan for members of the Residence Halls Association. It is their mode of operation, their commitment to providing quality life to about 2,400 people who chose to live on campus. Besides working on safety concerns, RHA members also are involved with maintenance of the buildings, rules and regulations in the halls and other residential issues. President Jaime Seamands said, "It is especially difficult since the University is mainly a commuter school and also because the city of Houston has so many different opinions to offer outside campus." But she trusts, yearly events such as Homecoming, Cougar Roar, Winter Ball and other parties will encourage participation and gradually make residents become more active and involved. Through the work of the executive officers, the newly created hall councils and the advice of its four committees (Food, Facilities, Polices and Spirit) RHA endeavors to become a more useful resource each day. "We are eager to get input from our residents. We want to know their needs and expectations and also have them come up with ideas. We want to work for them," Seamands said. The year 2000 will introduce several changes. "Pretty soon construction of a 500-bed new complex will be starting Adam Miller, RHA's secretary treasurer said. "Most people are really enthusiastic about the idea because the room availability has been a concern for a long time," Miller said. This year we had a waiting list of about 400 students." As the Association itself, efforts will be geared towards building a closer relationship with the advisors, who work for Residential Life and Housing, and the hall councils' members from RHA. Together Seamands explained RHA and RLH could coordinate social and educational programs and get mutual cooperation. If achieved, she believes the residential housing community as a whole will be empowered. •byCarolina Amengual QUAD LIFE Many students at UH lived In the Quadrangle.
