Hello! My name is Connor and I'm from the middle of nowhere in the bootheel of Missouri. At Southeast, I have been a part of SOL and College Democrats, where I am the Vice President of Programming.

Hello! My name is Madalynn Brown and I am the Programming Communications Coordinator and super excited about being in this position. For the 2016-17 year, I was a Towers East voting representative for RHA and fell in love with this organization! I am also involved in Friends of Recovery (FOR), a new organization on campus. I am employed as a second year Computer Lab Assistant for Southeast's I.T. Department. I am beyond excited for what this position holds and cannot wait for a year full of programs and fun!

After being a Towers East representative for the past year, I was elated to be nominated the Public Relations Chair. In addition to being involved in RHA, I'm a Towers East RA and I'm involved in Chi Alpha, an amazing campus ministry here at SEMO! Some of the things I like to do in my free time are spending time with my friends (they're the cooler versions of me), listening to music (I can recite every Twenty-One Pilots song word-for-word), watching Blues games (I'm the future Mrs. Pietrangelo), watching "The Office" on Netflix (Phyllis is basically me), and napping (if it isn't at least an hour, I don't count it as a nap). Chances are, if I'm not in the RHA office, 99% of the time I'm either in class, eating, or sleeping.

My name is Ashley and I'm a junior here at Southeast and the National Communications Coordinator (NCC) for RHA! As the NCC, I maintain communication and affiliation with other RHA organizations at colleges and universities within our region and at a national level. My freshman year I served as a representative for Vandiver Hall and was a part of Advertising Committee and the Funding Board. I'm really excited to see what kinds of things we accomplish this year! I am also the Vice President of our National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) and an RA at River Campus. You may see me running around campus giving tours to incoming students, because I am also a Student Ambassador.
Outside of Residence Life, I enjoy painting and reading. I'm also a freestyle juggler, but I'm not any good at it. I love long walks along the river and ice cream from Port Cape (the mocha almond fudge is EVERYTHING).
Fall of 2015 - RHA provided brand new ice machines with filtered water dispensers for the following halls: Dearmont, Towers South, Towers East, and Myers
Fall 2015 – RHA purchased banners and flags for each residence hall for Move – In Day.
RHA purchased benches after students complained of nowhere to sit and wait for shuttles. They were placed in several hall locations.
Spring of 2014 - RHA was part of a committee that helped get AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) installed across campus.
RHA worked to purchase the furniture that now fills the fireside lounge in the Towers Complex.
Every two years RHA does an inventory of cookware and utensils for all the kitchens in each residence hall and replaces missing items. They recently supplied each hall with a vacuum cleaner for student cleaning purposes.
