Residence Hall Association
Founded in 1999, the Residence Hall Association (RHA) serves as a governing and programming umbrella student organization for the 5 residence halls on campus, the individual Community Councils, weekend warriors, and the Omega Zeta Epsilon chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary. RHA focuses it's efforts in five areas: advocacy, community, leadership, programming, and recognition. As a completely student-run organization, RHA oversees a budget comprised of the residence hall activity fee students pay each semester. RHA serves as the voice for students living on campus; making recommendations regarding college issues, acting as a liason between students and residence life, and standing up for students' rights and concerns. RHA coordinates a number of campus-wide programs and activities, participates in community events, hosts leadership training workshops, and travels to colleges and universities across the country to attend various leadership conferences and represent Salem State University interests.
Recognized with more national awards than any other institution in the northeast, Salem State University's Residence Hall Association serves as a model for collegiate leadership and advocacy organizations across the country.
RHA meets on Monday nights in the Marsh Hall conference room (room 210) above the Marsh Dining Commons. All students are welcome to attend and voice their opinions/concerns.
