The best way to be successful is to get involved in campus life! NHTI offers a variety of opportunities that allow you to explore exciting topics, meet new people, and have a positive impact on our campus community and beyond. 

Residence Hall Councils

Each Residence Hall has a council that meets on a weekly basis to plan events, discuss community concerns, and purchase hall amenities. Each council has its own elected executive board that provides opportunities for you to take on a leadership role. 

Councils have their own budget (funded through the Resident Activity Fee) that allows board members like you 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. 

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.

RA Positions

Resident assistants, or RAs, are returning students who oversee floors and groups of rooms in residence halls and work to create opportunities to challenge and support 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. Interested in applying to be an RA? Click here!

Consider joining a club on campus – it’s the best way to meet new people, experience new things, and become a part of something BIG!
