Just a few of advantages of living in a Residential College

  • Each residential college has a faculty member ~called a Resident Master~ who lives in the building and serves as academic example and guide.
  • Upper-class Mentors, Learning Assistants and Resident Assistants serve as positive role models and are always willing to help freshmen with any questions.
  • Students take some of their classes in their building of residence, making studying and doing homework together even more convenient and productive.
  • You will have an opportunity to make a difference both at home and abroad through a wide offering of service-learning projects. Take a look at what we do each year in Rwanda at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciWJwA_Nhzg
