The General Body is the heart and soul of RHA. It is the dedication of our members that determines the success of our organization.
Who makes up the General Body?
The General Body is comprised of residents from all 31 clusters across campus. Each cluster sends their House Council Vice President to represent the needs of their residents. Some clusters have more than one vote, and will send additional voting representatives in addition to their Vice President. Only House Councils in good standing can request funding and have voting rights.
What does the General Body do at meetings?
Every Tuesday there are general body meetings. These meetings are used to gather feedback about processes happening on campus, vote on funding requests, advocate for student needs, and get information about a variety of things that are happening around campus and impact residential students. Several meetings a year will focus on the development of leadership skills in the General Body. Speakers and activities are a large part of helping us to become stronger leaders and represent our clusters in the best possible way.
I'm not in a House Council but I'm interested in RHA, can I still come to meetings?
Of course! RHA wants motivated students who have a genuine desire to grow in this community. Although you will be unable to request funding, you can still represent your cluster by remaining active in discussions as well as participating in committees.
I don't have a lot of time, is RHA a big commitment?
RHA meets every Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm and are generally held at the Campus Center. This organization can help you achieve your potential. You will get out what you put into it.
