Your hall is the perfect place to start getting more leadership experience. Hall Government consists of residents who have been elected by the residents within that hall. Members of Hall Government decide how to spend social funds, plan programs and events for residents, and develop leadership skills. Talk to your residence life coordinator, assistant residence life coordinator, or student staff member for more information. Hall Government meets every Tuesday at 8pm in your Hall. For more information about Hall Government talk to RHA, your Student Staff Member, or your Residence Life Coordinator or Assistant Residence Life Coordinator.

Resident Assistants and FIG Assistants make up the core of our Residence Life student staff. This talented staff,

free room and board, an annual stipend, and the advantage of training and experience that is sure to carry over
into their future careers.
