Weekly meetings are every Tuesday at 7 PM on the second floor of the Leadership Development Center.
The Residence Halls Association (RHA) serves as the voice for those students who live within the residence halls on campus. We are the second-largest student organization at Texas Tech University, representing every student who lives on campus.
RHA provides many programs and activities to enhance the living environment in the residence halls and to encourage the exchange of ideas. Some of the traditional programming we do involves Safe Treat, Carol of Lights, and Spring Fling. Of the non-traditional programming we offer, the range goes from campus-wide basketball tournaments to awareness programs to massive Retro Gaming conventions with hundreds of students living on campus.
The main goals of the RHA are to create awareness, advocate for change, and offer useful programming to help students with the movement to campus life versus living at home in as easy a transition as possible. There are many opportunities to make life-long friendships as well as create useful networks of contacts through the university professional staff and upper-university administration, so if any of that is of interest, be sure to look into how best to get involved with RHA.
