What is RHA?
The Residence Hall Association is an organization established to promote interaction among residence halls. In order to achieve this purpose, RHA provides services and activities for the benefit of the residents.
RHA is here to represent the residents in UWW Residence Halls, bring leadership and programs to foster community and to provide social, cultural, and intellectual development. We also review and uphold University housing policies and procedures and act as a link between administration and the residents.
RHA feels that by doing this, communication and cooperation between the residence halls and other university organizations will formulate maximum representation of the residence hall students.
OTMs (Of the Months) OTMs are a great opportunity for people to recognize any individual that made a difference in a particular month. They can be written anytime and are due on the 5th of each month. (Example April OTM is due on May 5th) Please visit OTM Website to submit Of the Months.
RA Funds Request
RHA has a new Funds Request Program! Each semester an RA can request up to $50, and will be reimbursed after we receive a receipt.
*In order to request funds please fill out this form (RA Funds Request Form), and bring it to the RHA office, 228 Goodhue Hall, during office hours. Then you will be asked to speak at a meeting in order for the assembly to approve your request. Meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7pm in the UC Old Main Ballroom 275.
The Residence Hall Association recognizes those who work hard, think positively, never give up, and set good examples for others to follow.
The You Rule Award is given out to any member of the residence halls who deserves to be recognized for their hard work and spirit for the week. Recipients may be nominated by any resident of the UW-W campus , and the winners of these awards will be announced at each RHA meeting. E-mail RHAassist@uww.edu to submit a You Rule award today!
People love to be recognized, so take the steps to recognize them!
