Join us in congratulating University Housing on winning its first national Of the Month (OTM) award in September! We would like to congratulate Residence Hall Association (RHA) Vice President Jasmyn Monteiro for winning Student of the Month. This nomination was made by Itasha Smith, University Commons A Resident Assistant and National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) Executive Director, who has also written two other winning regional OTMs for the months of July and August. We are honored and humbled to receive such a high level of recognition.

The Royal Flame chapter of the NRHH is proud to recognize so many leaders in our residence halls. OTMs provide much needed recognition for the valuable efforts and contributions of the many student leaders in University Housing. Whether recognizing a single leader, a group of leaders or an effective program hosted by leaders, an OTM serves to congratulate and acknowledge the positive accomplishments while encouraging continued effort and even greater achievement.

NRHH is the premiere honorary supported by the leading international organization, National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Incorporated (NACURH), advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. NRHH strives to provide recognition for individuals who have contributed to the advancement of college and university housing. It ensures the advancement of member chapters through resource sharing, programming and leadership development opportunities to contribute and support the vision of NACURH.
