Community Councils

These groups give students like you a chance to make your community the best it can be through social programming and advocacy! Connecting with your Community Council is an easy way to get involved, develop leadership skills and have an impact where you live.

Students can choose to run for office, volunteer to plan events or participate by attending events and activities. The activities of each council vary every year because it is all about what the residents want. Be sure to attend a community council meeting and see your ideas become reality.

Each Community Council is supported by a Residence Life & Housing professional advisor and is an integral part of the Resident Student Association (RSA).
