At Stevenson University, we believe that a student's growth during his/her college years can and should extend beyond the classroom experience. The Office of Residence Life provides opportunities for this growth through programming--providing regular activities through which students can grow, learn, and develop, as well as build relationships, foster community, and have fun! Residents can also earn scholarship hours through their attendance at programs! Each Resident Assistant is responsible for hosting at least one program or activity per month. The Residence Hall Association (RHA) also sponsors large events throughout the academic year.
Residence Hall Association
Residence Hall Association is an organization open to all residents of the Owings Mills Housing complex. It is a student-run organization that represents the interests of Stevenson University residents on matters relating to Residence Halls. RHA plans events to bring the community together and to get the students involved. It also oversees Hall Councils and works closely with National Residence Hall Honorary. If you want to get involved please contact Gabrielle Glover.
National Residence Hall Honorary, is a nationally recognized honor society which is a co-organization with RHA concentrating on Service Leadership and Recognition. Application and induction into NRHH occurs every spring semester. For more information please contact Amanda Merson.
The CORE (Creating Opportunities for Resident Excellence) Program, co-sponsored by Academic Support Services and Residence Life, is designed to assist residents whose GPAs fall short of the minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA required to live in housing. When a student's cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0, the CORE program allows the student a one semester grace period to improve and meet the GPA requirement.
Am I required to participate in the CORE Program?
Stevenson University is committed to students' academic success; therefore maintaining a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required to live in housing. Any resident whose cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 is required to participate in the CORE Program in order to retain their housing privilege. If at the end of the semester you still have a sub-2.0 cumulative GPA, you will be ineligible for housing in the residence halls. It is in your best interest to make serious efforts to improve your grades using this program.
