Residence Hall Leadership Organization

RHLO Executive Board

The Residence Hall Leadership Organization (RHLO) is a campus-wide group that aims to promote community among our residential population, advocate for the needs of residents and liaise with University administrators who directly impact the residential experience.

RHLO encompasses a unique consortium of Hall Councils that individually unite students in a particular residence hall by planning engaging events, fostering a sense of community, and most of all, serving as advocates, representatives and leaders. Collectively, RHLO encourages among its Hall Councils collaboration on planning and ideas between residence hall communities and engagement of students in events on a campus-wide scale. 

RHLO and Hall Council members manage a budget, plan events and foster a sense of community in their residence halls and across campus. Past RHLO members have used the experiences they’ve gained to serve as resident advisers, take on leadership roles in clubs and student organizations and secure internships.

To learn more about RHLO, including contact information and resources for hall councils, visit the RHLO website.  You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram.
