Zombies are coming back to UConn. The Resident Hall Association (RHA) is bringing back Humans vs. Zombies to UConn for its second year, according to RHA President Jeffrey Braun, a game of tag with a twist that has been popular in the past.
Beyond events coming this year, RHA’s structure is changing. While it has previously had seven seats, RHA added an eighth board member. The Director of Advocacy is a new position this year. The latest addition to RHA’s leadership was established specifically to work with Area Councils and expand advocacy initiatives for UConn students.
RHA is a student-run association that connects students with UConn administrative departments. It governs students living in on-campus housing through the Area Councils, generates new programming for the student body to participate in and provides students with opportunities to engage in leadership roles. It represents UConn on local and national platforms. RHA members work with the Undergraduate Student Government as well as Resident Assistants to guide the student body. Additionally, it is very active in student life and activity planning.
Planning for new events starts with the Director of Programming. This officer is the center of brainstorming for new campus events, though the board as a whole takes part in the detail work of planning out and finding the right time to host these events. It’s an intensive process to bring an event all the way from brainstorming, to planning, to seeing the proceedings themselves on campus, too much to do for one person.
