Meet Your RHA Executive Officers!

 

There are six RHA Executive Officers (Exec's) elected each year to serve in the the roles of President, Administration and Finance Officer (AFO), National Communications Coordinator (NCC), Social Justice Activities Coordinator (SJAC), Leadership Development Activities Coordinator (LDAC), and the Media and Social Activities Coordinator (MSAC) - we really love our acronyms by the way. These officers are compensated with room and board, and work the following year to maintain and improve the organization by being the first line of Communication to UHDS Administration, supporting the Area Councils, and hosting events for residents.

Zoey Knorr
President

rha.president@oregonstate.edu

Hiya! My name is Zoey Knorr and originally I am from Redmond Oregon.  

As President of the RHA it is my job and joy to support my fellow Executive Officers, and to be the face of our organization. My goals for this year include focusing more heavily on programming (as our students definitely deserve all the fun that can be had after the pandemic), allowing more room for input and voices from people all over campus, as well as increasing our cooperation with campus organizations in order to branch out and allow more folks to experience the joys that being apart of the OSU Community provides. 

My family has gone to OSU for generations and I am so happy and honored to continue that legacy as well as to work with the Residents Hall Association in maintaining the OSU Values of Inclusivity, Excellence, and Dam Good Programming! In my spare time I enjoy being a member of OSU's Dodgeball Club, reading fantasy novels (Vampire Literature in particular), musical theatre (both viewing and performing) and making new friends! 

I hope to see you around!

Some of my interests are; martial arts, photography, hiking, dungeons and dragons, coffee, and just anything that can be done with friends (I swear, even the most obscure activities sound fun to me with the right people)!
