Ways To Get Involved
Eastern Kentucky University Hall Council is made up of individual representatives from each Residence Hall and the Brockton Studios. Each council consists of an elected body consisting of President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary, in addition to having at least one representative per floor/wing. Hall Councils are responsible for co-curricular programming and creating a diverse social and educational atmosphere for approximately 4,000 campus residents. This is accomplished through hosting several activities, speakers and fundraisers. The council also serves as a liaison between residents and the University Housing office regarding campus living issues and concerns. All resident students are eligible for an office and are encouraged to become involved with Hall Council.
Residence Life Council (RLC)
Residence Life Council is EKU's Student Government branch equivalent to the United States House of Representatives. Working as a representative body of on-campus residents, RLC is responsible for residential legislation as well as residential programs. RLC concentrates its efforts on campus residents in providing programs, services, and advocacy. Getting involved with Residence Life Council is very easy and very fun! Applications are available in the Student Government Office of the Powell Building. You must be an on-campus resident to apply.

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)
The National Residence Hall Honorary is a service of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Inc. It is designed to give local, regional and national recognition to students making outstanding contributions to their residence halls. NRHH exists to honor these students. These people work hard, and all too often go unnoticed without even so much as a thank you. Correcting this through recognition is the fundamental purpose of an NRHH Chapter. NRHH is the only nationwide organization that recognizes residence hall leaders. Membership in local chapters is limited to 1 percent of the school’s residence hall population, or 20 members, whichever is greater. As you can see, NRHH is composed of a very select group of leaders. Thus being selected into the membership is an honor in which one can take a great amount of pride.
