We, the Residence Hall Association, representing the residential community of Southern Oregon University, acknowledge uniqueness through learning and understanding by promoting tolerance, inclusivity, social justice, and unity among all students. Accepting the responsibility granted upon us by the Department of Housing to be the main policy approving body for the residence halls, we will place emphasis on the residents’ voice and opinions on issues and concerns. We encourage the development of leadership and self-responsibility, while striving to maintain an open and harmonious living environment.

I like to think that my favorite animal is a wolf.
My favorite season is Fall.
I would choose amusement parks, like Universal Studios Orlando, Wizarding World of Harry Potter - compared to a day at the beach.

My favorite animals are dogs, forever and always! But if I were forced to give a less basic answer, I’d have to say Giraffes!
My favorite season is Winter!
I love amusement parks, especially Universal Studios, Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Kaztiny and I are on the same page y’all, get with it) - instead of days at the beach.

Week Of Welcome:
RHA hosts several events during the weekend before classes begin in order to welcome students back to campus and to a new academic year! These events consist of an outdoor movie night, Rock The Block, and Raider Village Experience. What these events look like may vary each year.
Haunted Hall is an event that occurs in celebration of the spooky season. It is a "haunted house" that is spread through out the entire Residence Hall. Each floor has a different theme and the themes change every year.
Treat Yo' Self With RHA:
This event takes place during the Quiet week of every term. The RHA team hands out free breakfast items and hot beverages to students who might be too stressed or late to class, to grab breakfast. This is a way to offer some relief to busy students and brighten someone's day.
Winter Ball is one of the most popular events hosted by RHA. This is a semi-formal ball, held every year. There's a DJ, fancy food, and breathtaking decorations. The theme changes each year.
Block Party is held in celebration of making it through another academic year! There's food, games, music, and more!
Each residence hall (Greensprings, McLoughlin, Shasta, and Madrone) has an Area Council that is elected at the beginning of each academic year. Each elected council consists of 5-7 residents that make up the Area Council Executive Board. These students are tasked with creating an engaging community through the implementation of social and educational programming in the residence halls, with the assistance of their advisor(s). The executive board members work very closely with the Residence Hall Association, and is often a stepping stone to other leadership opportunities in University Housing. If you are interested in getting involved or have questions please contact the Leadership & Retention Coordinator Allyson Beck at email@example.com.

The only two in use during the academic year is Applegate and Bear Creek. Greensprings holds 200 residents which allows room for two representatives in the Greensprings Area Council.
