RHA / Area Councils

 
 

The Resident Housing Association (RHA) is the official voice of the residential student body living in North Lake Village, South Village and West Lake Village at FGCU. Members have an opportunity to develop social, networking, communication, and leadership skills as well as attend and participate in events, conferences, and community service. RHA’s mission is to serve as the governing body that instills empowerment, responsibility, and tradition in students living on campus. In addition to being the voice of the resident student body, RHA is just as well known for its social events. Stay up to date here: http://fgcurha.weebly.com/

Area Councils, a subdivision of RHA, provide opportunities for students to get involved in a variety of leadership positions within their residence hall. There are four executive board positions in each area and floor/wing delegates. All positions are elected at the beginning of the Fall semester and are held for the entire academic year.

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is an honor society that exclusively recognizes leaders in the residence halls and is comprised of the top 1% of students living on-campus. Students interested in becoming a part of NRHH can speak to their RA, Resident Director or any member of NRHH.

The Residential Conduct Council (RCC) is a conduct hearing body that is run entirely by residential students. Students who are involved with the RCC typically meet twice a week and hear conduct cases, render decisions for students who violate University policies and levy sanctions as appropriate. All residential students are welcome to apply for the RCC within the first three weeks of classes in the fall and spring.
