Action on Campus
Though RHA works with many aspects of campus life, as a student you will most likely see us in action through our work with your hall government and on-campus programming. Hall government is the student government within the North Side and South Side residence halls, which are overseen and supported by RHA and their Para-professional staff advisor.
At the beginning of the year, you will have the opportunity to become a representative for your hall. These representatives’ main responsibility is to help build community through programming, policy change, and representation of residents.
However, RHA’s biggest function in the halls is to provide programming to the residents who live there. We put on several programs each semester, which in the past have included: Haunt the Hall, Boxer Bingo, and Pacific's Got Talent, to name a few.
The Big Picture
RHA not only works to stay connected to other groups on campus, but also works to stay connected to other schools in our region as well as the rest of the country.
Pacific University's RHA is a member of PACURH (Pacific Affiliate of College & University Residence Halls) a region of NACURH (National Association of College & University Residence Halls). By making these connections, we are better able to keep up with what is happening at other schools and bring those ideas and experiences back to Pacific.
RHA meets weekly in order to plan programs or discuss current issues concerning students. They also facilitate the RHA/Hall Government General Assembly in order to keep everyone updated on what is happening around campus, especially in the Residence Halls.
If you have any ideas for programs we could put on or issues you feel need to be addressed, feel free to come by our weekly general assemblies (every Tuesday at noon in the Burlingham Conference Room), fill out a sponsorship, hall improvement or policy and long term project proposal form, drop by the RHA office located in Clark 328A, or contact an Executive Board officer. If you are interested in taking an active role in hall leadership, consider running for Hall Government in the fall or for an Executive Board position in the spring.
