Community Councils

Each residence hall provides an opportunity for students to serve in its community council, which is a residence hall student government body for that particular hall. Each community council meets biweekly throughout the school year addressing hall issues and concerns and plans social events for the students who live in that particular hall. The Residence Hall Assembly governs all community councils.

Residence Hall Assembly

RHA is the campus-wide residence hall student government body. RHA meetings are held every other Monday at 8 p.m. The purposes of the RHA are:

  • To act on the behalf of all students who live in the halls and to represent their interest on levels of the University government, making recommendations to University administration as the need arises.
  • To provide campus wide programming for the residence hall students, while serving as a link between campus wide programming and the residence halls in order to assist in coordination of events on campus.
  • To recommend and review policy which governs residence hall living. RHA will meet regularly throughout the school year addressing hall issues and concerns and planning social events for students.

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is the recognition branch of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). NACURH, as an organization, believes recognition is a must in a strong residence hall community. NRHH was founded to make sure that recognition is not forgotten on campus and in the residence halls. NRHH chapters have a very special way of recognizing those top leaders through unique and creative recognition programs. The NRHH chapter membership (per school) is restricted to one percent of students living in the residence halls. The Jungle Chapter of NRHH at PSU is limited to 20 members and is permitted to induct two honorary members per year.
