"NRHH is a leadership-based Honorary comprised of exemplary residential students who value recognition and service.”
What is NRHH?
NRHH was established in 1964. It is a service of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Inc (NACURH). NACURH is a nationwide organization that contains all colleges and universities who wish to affiliate their NRHH’s and residence hall associations.
Who are we?
Students who are involved in the residence halls spend a vast amount of time and effort to make the college experience more meaningful for others, as well as themselves. These students are the campus leaders that make up the membership of the NRHH. All of the NRHH chapters make up the top 1% of on-campus students nationwide!

Our Purpose
Our purpose is to give national, as well as local recognition to students making outstanding contributions to the residence halls. It is because of this lack of recognition that NRHH was born. It should be noted that the purpose of NRHH is not to be an isolationist organization, but rather an instrument in improving and strengthening residence hall life. All members of the residence halls have an opportunity to nominate fellow residents, staff members and faculty to be recognized on a monthly basis.

Symbols of NRHH
The colors of NRHH are blue and white. Blue symbolizes loyalty to purpose and idea. The white signifies a blank page on which students write the successes and experiences that fill their days in the residence halls.

The symbol for NRHH is a diamond surrounding the letters of the organization, and the three interconnected lines are the chain of leadership. The diamond, the world's most precious gem, signifies the value and beauty one finds in the residence hall experience.

The first link of the chain represents caring. Leaders are people who care. They are concerned about themselves and others, and are committed to making things better. The second link signifies dedication. Part of a leader's commitment is the dedication to cause which they display. Dedication is an important part of the involvement required to be truly effective. The third link represents participation. True leaders participate fully in their academic pursuits, their friendships, their activities, and their lives. Leaders don't sit on the sidelines, but are competent team players. Together the unbroken chain symbolizes the membership of NRHH. As leaders we are interconnected as caring and dedicated participants in the community of your university.
