The mission of RHA is to be a residential resource organization, advocate for on-campus residents and promote leadership, services, and opportunities in order to create a link between the residents and the University by educating the residents, promoting diversity and serving as a voice.
RHA represents the 6,500+ students living within Clemson University’s residence halls, apartments, and suites.
Our purpose is to better the “on-campus living experience“ by building community, listening to student’s concerns, and providing social and education programs for residents. We do this through two separate entities: the RHA General Assembly and the Community Councils.
Each residence hall or group of residence halls has a council that serves as the voice of that hall. We refer to these councils as “Community Councils.” These councils meet weekly to plan program for residents, take polls and surveys concerning the specific residence hall, and get student feedback on a variety of larger issues. Each hall council has 2 members called Senators, who attend weekly General Assembly meetings lead by the Executive RHA President.
The community councils for the 2017-2018 school year are:
Each community council consists of members who are elected by their peers in early September. All community councils have the following positions:
RHA General Assembly meetings occur every Thursday night at 7:30 pm. At these meetings, members are allowed to vote on legislation for RHA and help the executive board plan events, hold open forums, and bridge the gap between residents and the Housing Department.
During the first two weeks of classes RHA members will be holding an information session in each residence hall. Look out for flyers posted and any emails from your building’s Community Director (the graduate student or professional staff member who runs your building) about the date and time.
When locations and times are finalized they will be posted here.
