National Residence Hall Honorary
The National Residence Hall Honorary is a student organization comprised of the top 1% of all students in college and university residence halls across the country. At no time is any chapter permitted to admit more than 1% of its total residence hall population.
Today, more than 170 chapters are affiliated with the National Residence Hall Honorary National Office. Activities of the chapters vary from campus to campus. Some simply induct new members at an annual recognition banquet; thus, they are an honorary chapter. Others are extremely active on their campuses and in their communities, coordinating leadership retreats, conferences, socials, hall or campus-wide programs, fund raisers, and a whole host of other events. Still others have found a middle ground that suits their campus. Membership selection is conducted by each individual chapter. The chapter members represent the top 1% of the student leaders on campus and are those who have contributed extraordinary amounts of personal time and energy in order to make the residence halls more than a "dorm."
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) was established in the fall 2008 by the Office of Housing and Residential Life (OHRL) staff to bring recognition to the men of Morehouse who live on campus. The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. chapter is the first NRHH chapter at a Historically Black College and University. The chapter purpose is to recognize outstanding leaders in the residence halls, who assist in meeting the needs of Morehouse College, as well as the Atlanta community.
