What is NRHH all about?


National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is a student-run organization dedicated to recognizing outstanding student leadership on campus. Membership is restricted to the top one-percent of students living on campus. In addition to leadership, we also recognize students based on academic, recognition, scholastic, and service potentials.

Members of NRHH are expected to lead by example, act as role models to the campus community, make contributions to the organization, campus, and Cortland community. The are also expected to be internally motivated and driven to succeed. Through membership in NRHH, students are encouraged to enhance their leadership potential in new and exciting ways while encouraging others to do the same.
