Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) represents, and is composed of, members of the four Hall Councils. RHA works in conjunction with the individual Hall Councils to sponsor campus-wide programs and work toward the improvement of the residential environment. These activities have included day trips to New York City, weekend trips to Washington, D.C., outdoor adventure excursions, and educational speakers. RHA participates in the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). All residential students are invited to attend and participate in RHA meetings. Voting members are selected from the elected representatives from the four Hall Councils.

Residents who would like to join RHA should possess some knowledge of (or be willing to learn about) student government, awareness of resident needs/concerns, and a commitment to residence life. Students interested in becoming involved with Emerson's RHA are encouraged to contact a member of the Residence Life staff or a Hall Council officer.

Hall Councils

The Hall Council is the student governing body of each residence hall. Hall Councils are involved with providing social and educational activities for their respective residence communities. Activities have included talent shows, cultural events, field trips, faculty/staff hall visits and presentations, discussion groups, and movies.
