Raising Wolves


Raising Wolves is a college jumpstart program designed by Residence Hall Association to help nurture the leadership potential within students through programming and hands-on leadership experience.

This is an exclusive experience and only a select few will be chosen from the Arkansas, Kays, University, Northpark Quads, and Honors residence halls to participate. Applicants will be selected based on leadership potential, past involvements, and/or a desire to be a leader and be involved. We want a great mixture of personality types as well as experience levels in order to create a dynamic experience for all.

 Students accepted in the program will be permitted to move-in early on August 14th opposed to move-in day on August 16th

On August 15th, students will attend a conference filled with mini-sessions teaching them about leadership and being an active member of Residence Hall Association. The following day – move-in day – students will help promote their different councils.


All participants of Raising Wolves are expected to be active members within their hall/area councils and within the RHA Body.  Please do not apply if you are not interested in student government within the residence halls.


If you would like to be a pup in this year’s upcoming Raising Wolves session, click on the link and have your application submitted no later than July 15th at 4pm .

 If selected to attend Raising Wolves you will have only 3 days to accept your spot!

Testimonials from last year’s dens:

“Raising Wolves, was a tremendous experience for myself. I came to A-State, not knowing a soul. The Raising Wolves program provided me with extensive familiarity of the campus, while making new friends along the way. I would recommend the Raising Wolves program to anyone that has Red Wolf pride, or really anyone after all. Arkansas State is the better school in the state. It benefited me and can surely help you. HOWL YES!”
