Students who participate in extracurricular activities in college do better in class and are more satisfied with their overall experience. Taking part in clubs, organizations, intramurals and other events allows students to meet others and build connections. Many of the skills learned though involvement opportunities will transfer into job skills and make students better applicants when entering the job market. Residence Life offers many ways for students to be active on campus. Listed below are some of our most popular Residence Life student groups.

Residence Hall and Apartment Association (RHAA) – RHAA is a student group who plan events and serve as the student government board for Residence Life. Students who join this group have the opportunity to discuss and vote on recommendations to the Office of Residence Life for changes or improvements for the students who live on campus. This group also creates and implements events for students to attend to meet other people, make connections, and have fun for free!

Event Planning In Communities (EPIC) – EPIC is a group of students who come together to plan events for other students with the help and guidance of a full time professional staff member who serves as an advisor. In the past they have hosted game nights, Halloween events, social gatherings, and many other fun activities for students living in housing.
