The Residence Hall Association held its executive board meeting last Thursday, Oct. 1, in the RHA room in University Hall. The executive board meeting was called to order by executive board president Brendan McKee. The meeting started with a recap of the previous week’s general board meeting, which was deemed a success.
This led to the discussion of the next general board meeting, in which the RHA general board will vote on the movie selection choices for the month of November. Students who are not on RHA general board can also come and vote on November’s movie choices.
Students on campus can watch movies anytime, anywhere for free. Films can be accessed from cell phones, tablets, computers, and televisions. To access films from mobile devices, students need to download the free Swank Media Player app.
The issue of hall damages was also addressed in the meeting. McKee talked about developing a strategy on how to deal with hall charges. He attended a second floor section meeting for Courtney Hall, where he said that there was a $2,000 charge for a vandalized couch in the second floor common room. Hall charges will be discussed further in upcoming meetings.
RHA will officially be going forward with their Halloween movie event. In a unanimous vote, the executive board will be showing the movie Halloweentown at the event on Monday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. in the University Hall multipurpose room.
Eileen Shaw, national communications coordinator in-training, stated that the RHA executive board is officially registered for NEACURH (The Northeast Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls), which is a regional conference. The conference will be hosted by SUNY Geneseo and will take place between Oct. 30 and Nov. 1.
The executive board discussed what needs to be accomplished for the conference, including shirts, a banner, pins, roll call, and a bid. The agreed date of completion for each of these items is Oct. 23.
Residence Hall Association executive board meetings are held on Thursdays in the RHA room of University Hall at 6 p.m. on days general board is held and 7 p.m. on days that the general board does not meet.
