the Resident A Monthly Publication of the Residence Hall Association at The University of Georgia Designed and Compiled by Cory Shaw, Director of Communications April is National Residence Hall Month Each week of the month is devoted to a certain aspect of the National Residence Hall Honorary and more information about “Heroes of the Halls” can be found at We are so excited to announce that April is National Residence Hall Month (NRHM). The theme for this year at UGA is “Heroes of the Halls.” The month is divided into four weeks: Service, Advocacy, Programming, and Recognition. Throughout these four weeks, RHA, NRHH, community councils, and RAs will be joining forces across campus to bring you a series of exciting programming during our last month within the halls. A few of them are listed below, but we invite you to check out at nrhm.uga. edu to find more details about all of the awesome things happening around campus this month. Service Week: April 1-7. On Friday, April 5, NRHH will be hosting a screening of the movie The Blindside. Come join us at 5 p.m. in Building 1516 Multipurpose room! Additionally, we will be collecting food products for the Food 2 Kids program all week. On April 6, we have our first volunteer opportunities. Come help with Hands on Athens. Dress in old clothing and wear closed-toe shoes. Sign up for a shift here. Also on April 6, help at the Northeast Georgia Food Bank by signing up here. On April 7, help volunteer for the Early Bird Triathlon! Members of NRHH can sign up individually here. Advocacy Week: April 8-13. RHA executive board members, NRHH members, and volunteers from the Residents’ Concerns committee will be heading to your community! We will be tabling in various places asking residents to fill out surveys about their concerns and opinions. You can see the hours and place of each exec board member here. If you visit us and fill out the survey you will get a free superherothemed decal! We will be sending a link to a virtual survey out over the listserv. Just remember: your opinion matters and it wouldn’t be UGA without U! Programming Week: April 14-21. Every hall council, along with NRHH and various RAs across campus, will be hosting social programs. The cool thing about this week is that all of these socials are for every resident, not just that particular community. This week is known as “RezFest,” and it’s our way of giving back to you. Come out and celebrate with us on April 18 from 6-8 p.m. at Legion Field. You can find a list of all the events here. Recognition Week April 22-28. The final week encourages everyone to recognize the heroes that they see in the halls. NRHH will be hosting a “Recognizing Forward” drive. If you receive or give a bracelet from doing something positive, tell us about it here. April is an exciting month in residential life. It’s the last full month you’ll be living in your hall this year. Let’s end on a great note. Tweet us your experiences throughout the month with #HereosoftheHalls and #UGANRHM13.
