National Residence Hall Honorary
NACURH (National Association of College and University Residence Halls) is the leading national organization advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. It is an organization of students committed to developing leadership, honoring diversity, recognizing achievement, as well as stimulating engagement and involvement among students who reside in college and university residence halls. Through regional and national programs and services, NACURH provides leadership opportunities for students, shares residence hall programming resources and best practices, and coordinates activities with appropriate professional associations and business partners.

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is an organization consisting of the top 1% of student leaders in the residence halls on campus. NRHH is founded on four pillars, leadership, service, scholastics, and recognition. While NRHH promotes all of these pillars, arguably the most important to the organization is recognition through their campus wide Of The Month awards (OTM’s). These awards are a fantastic way to recognize someone who you feel is in need of recognition, either because they ran a fantastic program, taught a great class, or were just a good friend.
Should an OTM win the campus level, it will be submitted to our regional competition, where it will compete with 49 other institutions in the central Atlantic region, CAACURH, and should it win there, it will move on to our national affiliate, NACURH, the largest student run organization in the world. We are also given the unique opportunity to attend conferences through both of these organizations and network with other students from across the world.
Every school that has an NRHH chapter gets to select a chapter title. In honor of our furry friends on campus, we selected the Black Squirrel Chapter as our title. If you think you’d make a great black squirrel, or you’re just looking for more information feel free to contact or visit us:
