Hall Associations 

One of the most exciting ways a residential student can get involved is by joining Hall Association. Each area has their own organization and residents can join by running for a position on the Executive Board or attending general body meetings.

Executive Board and general body members work together to: 

  • plan and host events
  • advocate for student needs
  • build connections within their community
  • manage a budget
  • gain valuable leadership skills that will transfer to any internship or job
