National Residence Hall Honorary
Welcome to the Crossroads Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary! NRHH is a leadership honorary comprised of the top 1% of students living on campus.
Our values are recognition and service, and all of our programs, initiatives, and actions reflect those values. Please explore our website to find out more about the Crossroads Chapter and how you can get involved!
The National Residence Hall Honorary was founded in 1964 as a requirement for grant money by the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH), Inc. NRHH’s primary function then was to recognize on-campus leaders. While this is still important to chapters today, we have come a long way since 1964. Up until 2015, NRHH was upheld by 4 national pillars: Leadership, Recognition, Scholastics, and Service. With recent changes on the NACURH level, NRHH now values two important aspects of student leadership: service and recognition, while upholding academic standards and serving as a leadership honorary.
NRHH is represented by two symbols, the NRHH diamond and the NACURH interlocking links. The diamond, the world’s most precious gem, signifies the value and beauty one finds in the residence halls experience. The three interlocking links are representative of the chain of leadership, one standing for caring, one for dedication, and the last for participation. Together the unbroken chain symbolizes the membership of NRHH. As leaders we are interconnected as caring and dedicated participants in the community of our university. NRHH is also represented by the colors blue and white: blue symbolizing loyalty - the loyalty to propose ideas, while white signifies a blank page - where students write the successes and experiences that fill their days in the residence halls.
NRHH is a national organization that has specific chapters at universities across the nation. Our chapter, the Crossroads Chapter, was established in 2013 when the idea blossomed after a regional conference. Since then we have made ourselves known at IUPUI and throughout the state, region, and nation by attending conferences and having a voice in NRHH decisions. We have planned a variety of programs for the residents of IUPUI, and have held three inductions ceremonies. With the grand opening of North Hall, IUPUI's newest residence hall, our membership capacity has increased to 27 members, which is a huge opportunity for the Crossroads Chapter. Are you part of the top 1%? Visit our Membership tab to learn how to be inducted.
