University of North Carolina – Greensboro Office of Housing & Residence Life is a featured program.
The National Residence Hall Honorary is a student leadership organization that works to enhance the overall student experience on the UNCG campus, through intentional programming and recognition initiatives. The organization is student driven, with a focus on the student experience and the increased need for recognizing individuals who work diligently to enhance this experience. The Kappa Gamma Mu chapter of NRHH has grown tremendously over the past two years including: growth in active membership, working to consistently induct the top 1% of student leaders on UNCG’s campus, increasing the level of student centered and staff centered recognition initiatives on campus and finally through improvement and consistency in programming for UNCG’s 5,000 plus residential student population.
Being a leader in recognition isn’t any easy job, but UNCG’s NRHH chapter continuously accepts the challenge! The students involved in NRHH, have successfully garnished a tremendous following of support through the Housing and Residence Life Department, in support of their pillar of recognition. The department has worked to adapt national and university recognition days, to mold with the needs of the organization. This connection has been extremely helpful for the organization, particularly with the growth in the number of “Of The Month” or OTM submissions, acceptances and selected winners on the state, region and national levels. In the 2013-2014 academic year alone, there were 17 State OTM winners, and 7 Regional OTM winners—with some of these being selected in both categories. The recognition and OTM committees within NRHH work tirelessly to implement opportunities for individual and collective programmatic and individual efforts are consistently displayed for the greater campus community.
As long as there are students, faculty and staff working to contribute positively to the residential communities of UNCG, the National Residence Hall Honorary will be there to ensure that they are recognized for their efforts!
