RHA Executive Board Elections for 2014-2015
RHA is currently accepting nominations for 6 Executive Board positions for the 2014-2015 academic year!
Serve in an important leadership role, build upon your own leadership skills, and make a difference in the Res Halls by joining RHA Executive Board.
Nominations will begin on Monday, 3/17 in Preska 126 from 4pm-6pm with elections the following two weeks.
You do not have to be a RHA Rep in order to run for a position! Anyone planning to live on campus next year is qualified. All positions receive a stipend and room waiver totaling over $2300!
Nominations will take place before elections on Monday, 3/17, at General Assembly. Anyone can nominate you, including self-nominations. Elections will follow nominations. On Monday, 3/24, elections and nominations will be held for President, Vice President and Secretary. On Monday, 3/31, elections and nominations will be help for Treasurer, Programming Coordinator, and Tech and Design. Each candidate will be given 5 minutes for a speech and then stand for 5 minutes of questions and answers. Anyone who is not elected will be given the chance to run again for all subsequent positions. For example, if you run for VP and do not get elected, you are automatically nominated for Secretary, Treasurer, PCC, and Tech and Design.

If your wireless is slow or crashes, plug in. For any service that demands low latency or consistent packet delivery (as gaming and Netflix need) using the wired connection is the most reliable solution. Ethernet cables are available at the Campus Computer Store; a 25 foot cable will allow you to be plugged in anywhere in your room.
Hope that you all had a great break! This week is Winter Welcome Week and there are many great events that will be happening around campus. Check out the schedule for January 13-19 and get out and do some fun stuff with friends!
