The Residential Activity Fee funds all programs and activities sponsored by residential organizations and communities. The fee was established by the Residential Community Association (RCA) in collaboration with the Residence Life and Housing; to ensure that funds would be available to sponsor educational workshops events and activities for residents. Each year, the RCA is asked to forward a recommendation regarding the activity fee for the upcoming year as well as a suggested distribution for these monies. A few years ago, the RCA recommended a fee of $60 per resident, per quarter. This amount was approved by the University Board of Trustees.
The activity fee is distributed among hall/community governments, staffs, National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), Residential Community Association (RCA), African American Resident Caucus (AARC), and Residence Life. This fee is the same for all residents living in all of our communities.
If you're concerned with how your money is spent, become involved with your community government, Residential Community Association, or some other residential organization!
