RHA serves as the 'voice of the students' who live in our residence hall communities. We strive to work with the governing officers of each of our residence halls to create a campus-wide community, provide numerous programmatic opportunities, and unite the residence halls. We are a nationally-affiliated organization that has worked on several issues and concerns affecting our students who live on campus. Recent issues addressed include: safety and security of our UNK grounds and residence halls, dining service quality, and the restriction of tobacco use around the exterior of our halls.
Some of our annual events are 'Trick or Treat Street' for the Kearney area elementary school children, 'Bingo-palooza' and ice-skating at Viaero Event Center. This year, we have also been pleased to bring in acts such as comedian Alonzo Bodden (winner of Season 3 of "Last Comic Standing") and the hugely popular "Date Doctor", David Coleman. On a regional and national level, we take student delegates to retreats and to conferences in order to gain knowledge about what other campuses are currently doing to strengthen and motivate their student bodies. During the past year, we have visited institutions throughout the Midwest, and are looking forward to future travels.
