President: BreeAnna Poshek

My name is BreeAnna Poshek. I am a junior Selected Studies major; my focus area is post-secondary and human services. RHA is my main gig, but I am also involved with Kappa Delta Pi, Literacy Corps, and some independent community/research projects. My journey with RHA started as a Hall Representative in H2W, then I was the Civic Engagement Director for the campus-wide executive board and now I have the honor of being the President of Residence Hall Association. RHA came into my life when I was struggling to find my place at SU and now it's my second home. Being the president of an organization that is in transition is difficult but I love being a part of vision planning for years into the future. I hope you'll follow along and be a part of the journey as we work towards turning halls into homes.

Vice-President: Anthony Hersee

Anthony Hersee

What’s up everyone, my name is Anthony Hersee and I am your Vice President for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Originally from Evanston, Illinois, home of Northwestern University, right outside Chicago, I love being on the East Coast and fall in upstate NY is unlike any other.

For me, I have been part of RHA since my sophomore year and I regard it as a special organization unique from any other that helps give freshman students a platform to grow in their own leadership style.

As a senior, I am excited to work with you over the next few months and upcoming semester to help you make the most out of the largest student-run organization in the world and what we can do for you.

If you should need anything, you know where you can find me. Let’s make it happen!
