RHA Week


Take a look at last year's events!



RHA is turning 48, so join us as we take over TDR for a birthday brunch! Decorated for the occasion, just swipe as normal to enter and join the party! Meet with Hall Council members and Community Directors to chat about life in the halls or anything else you like! Share food with friends with TDR specials named after each Hall on Campus and other Reslife topics. Before you enter, grab a reusable RHA cup to use in and outside of TDR. As the fun ends, visit our photo-area and take that insta or finsta picture you know you need! 

Sunday 3/25 

9am - 1:30pm

Our ears are open, and we are ready to listen! RHA invites you to a social town hall at our weekly General Assembly. We want to hear from YOU! What do you want in the halls? Is there an issue that needs fixing? Have suggestions for advocacy work or social programs RHA should do? Stop by and tell your Hall Councils and Community Directors what you want. Need any more reason to come? FREE TACOS! Catered by Qdoba, grab some bites while you chat with us.

Hall Pride

Tie Dye

Let your creativity run wild! This year, we designed our 2018 RHA Week t-shirts as canvases in need of some color! It’s up to you to make it a work of art using tie-dye. Show your hall pride and tie-dye your shirt using the color of your hall! Think you might need some help? Our very own Clawed Z Eagle will be there to lend his assistance. For those that prefer the help of a human, RHA members will be at the ready to lend a hand or show you the process.

Tuesday 3/27

The Quad



Watch out! Hall councils are taking over! Each hall council is planning a special program for their residents. Look for more information on your hall Facebook page and other social media platforms. These are events you won’t want to miss! 

Wednesday 3/28

Times & Locations Vary



Need to release some stress? Got some pent up energy? Want to help make a masterpiece? RHA is creating art work for the halls and we need your help! Grab a balloon filled with paint and leave your mark on the canvas with a single throw! It’s that simple! Check out the paintings later in your residence hall lobby!

Night Flick

Let’s go to the Movies! 

Join us as RHA transforms Kerwin into a movie theater on Friday night! Don’t worry about purchasing a ticket - this theater experience is completely free! Bring some friends, settle in, and watch a movie chosen by you, the residents! Look on Facebook for a movie poll and cast your vote for what you want to see. Come to the movie a little early to grab candy and freshly popped popcorn while supplies last! 

Friday 3/30 

8pm - 11pm

Kerwin 2



The week ends with a party like no other. Revisit your childhood and race on an inflatable obstacle course, slide down a giant slide, hop around in a bounce house, and compete against friends in games like tug of war, connect four, giant Jenga, corn-hole, and arcade style basketball. Compete against other halls, for points that go towards the Hall of the Year competition: just tell any RHA member before you play that you are “In It To Win It,” and we will count it as mini competition between halls. Not looking for fame and glory? Just tell us you're here for fun, and we won’t hold it against you; win or lose, the points won’t be counted. 


You're probably going to work up an appetite, so free food trucks will be around to help ease your hunger!
