Get Involved with Your Hall
The best way to be successful is to get involved in campus life! NHTI offers a ton of opportunities to explore exciting topics, meet new people, and have a positive impact on our campus community and beyond.
Each residence hall has a council that meets weekly to plan events, discuss community concerns, and purchase hall amenities. Each council has its own elected board of student representatives.
Each council elects its own executive board every year – look for advertisements during the first week of classes for details about meeting times and locations.
Councils have their own budget (funded through the Resident Activity Fee) that allows board members to learn about college purchasing processes. You’ll have the opportunity to plan larger events with the other residence hall executive boards; previous groups have planned private movie screenings, outings to Canobie Lake Park, laser tag and trampoline park events, and trips to see the Red Sox.
Resident assistants, or RAs, are returning students who oversee floors and groups of rooms in residence halls and work to create opportunities for the residents in their communities. RAs are knowledgeable about campus resources, receive extensive training, and are here to assist you as you navigate the college experience.
RAs are hired using a tiered selection process, which takes place twice a year.
