Starting Together Achieving Resident Success or S.T.A.R.S. is an organization that started at Sam Houston State University and there are now branches in other schools in the region! S.T.A.R.S. was originally a wellness organization that dealt with issues of self image and wellness in general.

Now that Sam Houston State University has grown, other departments in the University have wellness programs making S.T.A.R.S. redundant. Legislation in the General Assembly was passed in Fall 2004 to make S.T.A.R.S. a service and fundraising extension of RHA.

S.T.A.R.S. fund raise for RHA and help HHAC fund raise. They are also in charge of providing RHA philanthropy opportunities.
