Each residence hall or complex has a hall council to help govern events and activities. All residents in a hall or complex is a member of their hall council. Elections for leadership positions are generally held in the spring or fall, and all students living in a building are encouraged to participate in the nomination and election process. Hall councils are plan regular educational and social events for their hall, adopt a charity for fundraising or donating their time to help, and some halls even develop weekend or overnight field trips for residents to visit other parts of the United States.

To get involved in your hall council, talk with your residence hall director or assistant residence hall director.
