Frequently Asked Questions:

Who can vote?
Any student who currently lives on-campus is eligible to vote.  You will receive an email to your inbox on March 11th or you can check back here for the link.  We do ask for your student ID number when you vote, but that’s only to validate your vote, its not linked or tracked in any way.  

What does RHA Stand for?  What exactly does RHA do?  And is that different than RHC?
RHA stands for the Residence Hall Association.  RHC Stands for Residence Hall Council.  Each Hall on campus has an RHC that works to plan events and represent their specific hall.  RHA is the larger umbrella organization  that represents ALL students that live on campus, regardless of what building you call home.   

How is RHA different from ASPLU?
Both are student government organizations that plan events and advocate for students.  What makes RHA different is that we only represent the on-campus community.  RHA works closely with Residential Life to make sure that the on-campus community is thriving and welcoming. ASPLU and RHA often partner together to plan events and advocate for student needs (and our offices are located right next to each other).  

I’m not living on-campus next year, why should I care or even vote?
If you currently live on campus you are eligible to vote, it doesn’t matter where you are living next year.  Even though you won’t be living on-campus, this is one last chance to help shape the on campus community.  Additionally, most of the events that RHA plans are designed with on-campus students in mind, but anyone can attend regardless of where you live.
