Boland Hall Council
Boland Hall Council is an active hall government.  Boland Hall Council is for the residents, by the residents and of the residents. Six members sit on the executive board in the positions of President, Vice President, PR Chairperson, RSA Representative, Of The Month (OTM) Coordinator and Secretary. The executive board members are residents of the building who have been elected by their peers.  They work together to put on programs, discuss floor or building issues and make Boland Hall a great place to live and learn. The advisor is the Boland Hall Residence Coordinator, and co-advisors consist of Resident Assistant Staff.

Hall Council is a great way for students to get involved in leadership opportunities within their building and connect to campus resources such as the Resident Student Association.  "For election 2008-09 information, make sure to contact your Resident Assistant!"
