This position pays for your housing and your meal plan for the entirety of the academic year with an extra small stipend each month.

This position also coordinates conferences that the RHA Executive Board attends through out the year. The position one will be training for will pay for 2/3rds of one’s housing plus a healthy stipend each month. The applications for this position are due January 10th by 5pm in the South Sister Annex located at the bottom of the ramp by valsetz.
