What is the Hilltop Council?

The Hilltop Council is the student government organization for Hilltop Apartments. This council determines what programs are funded based on the requests of the senate and/or requests of the resident students/faculty in Hilltop Apartments. Students each pay a $32 dollar fee (automatically added into housing costs) which makes up the cash reserves for funding programs. For more information on the council, see our constitution. Ask your RA or contact us if you are interested in joining.
