What is the RHA?
"Your voice in the residence halls" is the RHA's motto. The goal of the RHA is to be an advocate for residents' concerns and provide programming. This is done through the executive board, which includes a President, Vice President, Treasurer/Secretary, and Communications and NRHH Representative. In addition to the RHA executive board, each Hall Council President also serves as a member of the RHA and assists with the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the programs sponsored by RHA.
Past RHA programs have included Mr. Boston College, Fall Movie Night, Breaking the Barriers Ball, and SpringFest. Issues that have been addressed by RHA include smoking on campus and decisions about new residence halls. The programs and issues are generated by the students and are constantly evolving to reflect current issues and trends.
Share your love and support all year long with the Boston College care package program. A care package is the best way to remind your student that Mom and Dad are thinking of them on a birthday, a holiday, and during final exams. A care package says it all.
Each of our care packages are loaded with all of your student's favorite snacks, including fresh baked cakes or cookies, fresh fruit, candy bars, and more! The best part is that you can include your own personal note to your student in every package. Don't just show them how much you care, tell them!
Our goal, this year, is to ensure that every student receives at least one care package.
Your student is practically guaranteed to call home and say thank you when their package arrives. We offer a wide variety of options that will fit any budget and satisfy your student's cravings. We even have gluten-free and peanut-free packages to choose from.
