A Hall President’s main goal is to focus on developing social, hall wide programming to bring unity and togetherness to their halls. They are to abide by the set standards and regulations as set forth by the Residential Hall Association.
In relation to Senate, Hall Presidents will have duties similar to those of Senator’s, in which they are required to attend all Senate meetings and actively represent the dorms, apartments and houses they live in. Hall Presidents should collaborate with Senator’s in order to make reports to their living areas about Senate business and about posting important legislation in their dorms, apartments or houses in which they live. Unlike Senator’s, Hall Presidents will not be required to serve on a Co-chair committee. Students need to have a 2.4 GPA to be eligible for a Hall President position in Senate.
Hall Presidents are not required to serve on a Co-Chair committee.
