Residence Hall Handbook
The nature and quality of the environment in which you live are a great
part of your Faulkner State experience. In planning, staffing, and
operating our residence halls, we seek to meet your needs in every way possible.
Residential student organizations such as the RHA (Residence Hall Association)
offer additional amenities and programs that make the residence halls a great
place to live. Getting involved with RHA will give you the opportunity not only
to make great friends and to develop your leadership skills and abilities, but
also to assist in planning campus-wide events. Attendance at meetings gives
students the chance to give input on residence hall policy issues.
