The purpose of NRHH is to work to provide students with opportunities and growth within the values of service and recognition. NRHH will accomplish this by collaborating with campus and community partners to provide programs to build and retain active membership.

Residence Hall Council
All students are encouraged to become involved in their RHC. Each hall sets up its own system of governance, with committees and events based on the interests of the residents. Many upper class students say their involvement in co-curricular activities at BGSU began with their involvement in RHC.
The SMART Program
The SMART Program is a peer mentoring program offered by the Office of Residence Life. It is designed to help first-year residential students — especially those from marginalized populations—transition successfully to BGSU and to assist with retaining them into their second year and beyond. Participation in SMART is free and open to everyone.
Resident Success Mentor
A Resident Success Mentor serves as the first line of contact for first year residential students. The Resident Success Mentor is responsible for developing a positive, supportive relationship with students, providing leadership and guidance in helping them adjust to life as a college student. RSMs are also responsible for event planning, implementation, and management.
