Each resident is automatically considered a voting member of their hall council; allowing their voice to be heard on matters of hall policies, facilities improvements, staffing and hall programming. Being a member of a hall council brings with it certain privileges including peer recognition and providing content for your resume. Hall council meetings are held each week in your residence hall and all residents are urged to attend and participate.
