WELCOME FROM YOUR RHA!
To all of you who are new to our campus, Welcome! To those of you returning, Welcome Back!
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) would like to welcome everyone to the Home of the Nanooks! We look forward to building a community together that makes our Fairbanks campus feel like your home away from home!
RHA is a student-led organization made up of residents like you. In fact, if you are new, you have already joined your first club as all on-campus residents are members of RHA! As an organization, RHA seeks to enhance the Residence Life experience and provide students with opportunities to voice concerns and provide feedback to Residence Life and other university administrators and organizations.
We look forward to sharing new experiences and Nanook traditions with you this upcoming year, and we hope to see you at our social and community service events! We would also like to invite you to our general assembly meetings which are open to all on-campus residents. During these meetings, you can share your ideas for ways that we can advocate for your needs and help create a great experience for all Nanooks on campus.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, we encourage you to contact the RHA advisors.
If students need help or have questions about studying resources, financial aid, or how to maintain a healthy lifestyle check out these campus resources.
WHAT IS RHA?
The Residence Hall Association is made up of students like you. In fact, all on-campus residents are members of RHA! As an organization, RHA seeks to enhance the quality of the Residence Life experience and provide a cohesive voice for residents by addressing concerns of the on-campus population to Residence Life and other university administrators and organizations.
RHA is a platform for students to discuss concerns, plan social and educational events on campus, and organize philanthropic events to benefit on-campus residents and the greater Fairbanks community alike. Additionally, RHA can provide funds to residence halls for events or supplies for the community such as kitchen utensils and board games. (See our Funding Proposal Form)
RHA is not only a great place to meet friends; but as a hall representative or executive board member, you’ll have the opportunity to have your voice heard, contribute positively to your residential environment, and get involved in social, educational and community service events — all while expanding your resume!
Second, RHA supports student development, academic success, and personal achievement through robust programs, engaging leadership opportunities, and meaningful community service.
And third, RHA builds an intentional community that creates a sense of belongingness for resident students so that they can thrive in college and persist through graduation.
