The Resident Student Association provides a student voice to the Office of Residence Life & Housing and serves the residential student body in two primary ways: making student-requested improvements for residence halls and organizing monthly activities for the Wake Forest student body. It is a unique group of students that work together to improve the residential aspects of student life. If you are interested in joining the RSA, contact Zach Blackmon or Elizabeth Leslie (Co-advisers). The RSA office is located in Benson 503.
Residence Life Advisory Board
The Residence Life Advisory Board (RLAB) was established to provide an open forum of active involvement by Resident Advisers, and other members of the Residence Life and Housing staff to discuss current issues with the purpose of enhancing the residential community at Wake Forest University. Membership ideally consists of one Resident Adviser from each hall staff, and potentially one Graduate Hall Director from each area. The Residence Life Advisory Board is advised and directed by the Coordinator of Residence Education on a weekly basis. When Resident Advisers are supported for involvement by his/her Graduate Hall Director, it is based on their quality of work, professionalism and observed ability to serve as a positive role model to residents and other RA staff members.
The National Residence Hall Honorary is an organization that brings the top 1% of University Residence Hall student leaders together to provide an opportunity to grow in leadership. This is accomplished by recognizing others who have contributed to campus life, as well as providing volunteer services to worthy causes within the community surrounding Wake Forest University.
Theme Housing is a program established to promote a direct link between residential, academic and extracurricular life for students at Wake Forest University. It is designed to provide students who have common educational endeavors or common extracurricular interests the opportunity to live together in campus housing. By focusing on a specific area of residential living, Theme Housing can profoundly impact the experiences of our students on campus. A Theme Housing program increases students’ opportunities to pool resources and learn from each other and has proven to be an effective living/learning tool.
