Residence Hall Association wins ‘School of the Year’ award

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Grace Gannon.

GW’s Residence Hall Association won the “School of the Year” award at a regional conference over the weekend.

The award recognizes student achievement in leading residence hall initiatives within the 75 schools that make up the National Association of College and University Residence Halls’ Central Atlantic region.

RHA President Ari Massefski, who made the announcement at the group’s monthly meeting Monday, said the executive board had to make a bid for the award.

“The bid very much focused on all the different things that have happened throughout RHA this year, whether it’s programming or the kitchen in Thurston or other advocacy projects,” Massefski said.

The communal kitchen in Thurston Hall opened this semester after months of negotiations between the University and the RHA.

The RHA will host a conference of other college and university residence hall associations in the region later this year.
