We are in the news!

A Residence Learning Community (RLC) is a themed residence environment where students share a common interest, major or coursework. RLCs are designed to extend opportunities for learning and development beyond the classroom. This is achieved by offering students enriched opportunities to network with peers, faculty and staff through programs held in residence and off campus. Please click on the links to the left of the page to learn more about each community. More detail on our new communities coming soon!
