National Residence Hall Honorary

Our Symbols

The two symbols for NRHH are those of a diamond surrounding the letters of the organization, and the three, interconnected lines - the chain of leadership.

The diamond is important because as the world's most precious gem, it signifies the value and beauty one finds in the residence hall experience.

The chain of leadership is important for the links that work together to symbolize the aspects of leadership. The first link represents caring. Leaders are people who care. They are concerned about themselves and others and are committed to making things better for their community.

The second link signifies dedication. Part of a leader's commitment is the dedication to cause, which they display. Dedication is an important part of the involvement required to be truly effective.

The third link represents participation. True leaders participate fully in their academic pursuits, their friendships, their activities and their lives. Leaders don't sit on the sidelines, but are competent team players. Together the unbroken chain symbolizes the membership of NRHH. As leaders, we are interconnected as caring and dedicated participants in the community of your university.

National Colors: Blue and White

The blue symbolizes loyalty: loyalty to purpose and idea. The white signifies a blank page: a page on which a student writes the successes and experiences that fill their days in the residence halls.

Local Colors: Green and Gold

Obviously, as the name of our chapter, Green and Gold symbolizes our organizations dedication to our University community as well as the surrounding areas.
