Residence Life Activities

OHRL continues its tradition of offering FREE social and educational programming to student residents and commuter students. This year there are a variety of events offered collaboratively with many campus and community partners. Light meals and/or snacks are typically a part of our free programming.

Resident Students Association

The Resident Students Association (RSA) will represent the interests and concerns of the residents of M State Campus Housing. RSA will sponsor activities, both educational and social, and can have representative positions on several committees across campus and the college.

All residential students are encouraged to be an active member of RSA through the monthly General Assembly meetings. The RSA General Assembly meets on the first Sunday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Spartan Lounge at College Manor.

Mark your calendar and bring your ideas for programming you'd like to discuss, elevate/bring awareness to issues that concern you, and discover opportunities to make residential life even better as you learn, live, work and play in campus housing.
