Residence Hall Association
This is the governing body for students within the residence halls. RHA membership comprises every student that lives on campus, meaning all RLSH and Casas del Rio residents are members of RHA. The voting members of RHA are elected within each of the campus communities, and they represent their communities' thoughts and opinions during RHA General Meetings.
RHA meets every Monday night at 7:00 pm in the Hokona Classroom, all residents are invited and encouraged to attend.
If you would like to speak at the meeting feel free to email us at email@example.com and direct the email to the Director of Communications with "Agenda Request" as part of the subject line to be put on the agenda for the next meeting!
If you would like to come to RHA to request sponsorship or funding you can visit the Funding and Supplies Request under the RHA tab.
Have an opinion or concern you would like to share? Or do you have a fantastic idea for a program you would like to see in the hall? Contact RHA at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts or get on the agenda at the general board meeting!
National Residence Hall Honorary
The National Residence Hall Honorary is a student leadership organization that works to recognize people for their contributions to our communities, as well as provide opportunities for students to gain leadership and service experience. The National Residence Hall Honorary is representative of the top 1% of student leaders in residence life. NRHH was established by the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) in order to recognize outstanding efforts of residents across the nation. Being involved with the University of New Mexico's Cherry & Silver Chapter is a great way to make a big impact on the greater campus community and network with students across the country.
Interested in being involved with NRHH? In order to be a member of NRHH, you must be a student who has lived on campus for at least one semester and plans to reside in Campus Housing for the next two semesters. Our members are also required to have and maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.75/4.0 scale. New members are inducted into the Cherry & Silver twice a year, in the fall and spring semesters. If interested, please contact the NRHH advisors or the executive board members.
Your residence hall hosts its community association meeting. These meetings include the local campus happenings, residence hall happenings, and much more. The focus of these meetings is to build the community and create a fun environment for all residents. Meetings can range from talking about what is going on that week, to programs put on by residents or RA's. The community association is a great way to become familiar with the community you live in as well as giving you a chance to become involved as a CA executive members like the president, vice present, or even RHA representative.
Being an RHA Representative is a great way to get involved in your on-campus community! Each hall has three RHA reps that report between the Community Association meetings and RHA meetings. Elections for RHA Rep happen at the beginning of the fall semester during the Community Association meetings. All hall meetings start around 8:30 every Tuesday night but if you have questions, talk to your RA when you move in, or email email@example.com to find out where your hall meeting takes place or to get clarification on how to get involved!
If you're interested in being on the RHA Executive Board, the first step is talking to the current executive board! You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can visit them during their office hours, which are listed under the "Meet Your Executive Board" portion of this website. Another great step towards joining the executive board is reading over the duties of an executive member listed in our constitution. Elections for the executive board happen late in the spring semester, or when there is interest for current vacancies, so stay tuned for info sessions and election information!
