RHA looks to mix upperclassmen halls
Residence Hall Association leaders said they want to allow sophomores to live in some upperclassman residence halls including New Hall and City Hall next semester. Their decision came after an administrative announcement last week that will prevent sophomores from living in upperclassmen halls.

Administrators also announced the number of housing picks auctioned at Martha’s Marathon will drop from ten to five.

Johnson said the RHA general body will vote at an upcoming meeting whether to approach the administration with the idea, noting that RHA’s “power to designate residence halls is almost always taken.”

He said juniors and seniors will still pick rooms before sophomores, and only ten percent of rooms in upperclassmen residence halls are usually “pull-ins.”
