Community Council

Each residence hall and apartment community has a Community Council – composed of student officers elected by on-campus residents – that represents each hall during RHA general assembly meetings, plans social and educational programs for its community, and works with the community’s professional staff to improve the quality of life for residents.

RHA Councils

RHA has several committees open to students, including Advocacy, Leadership Development, Programming, and Sustainability. Contact RHA to get involved or recommend a new council topic.



Dance Marathon

Dance Marathon at LSU is is LSU's largest philanthropic, student-run organization supporting the children and families of Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital. Each residential community has a team, so join FOR THE KIDS! 

Male Leadership Council

Male Leadership Council’s (MLC) mission is to identify and educate students on gender stereotypes, healthy masculinity, and how male leadership impacts college campuses. MLC members seek to inspire change in the LSU campus community while including multiple perspectives in their programming efforts to meet the needs of the diverse population on LSU campus.

Student Employment

University Hearing Panel

The University Hearing Panel exists to provide students with the opportunity to be actively involved in the educational student conduct process of the university. These panels hear cases of alleged academic and non-academic Code of Student Conduct violations.
