The Scholar Residential Learning Community seeks to enhance the education of residents by providing an experience that compliments classroom learning. This supportive, living-learning environment will promote scholarship and dialogue among residents while cultivating relationships with faculty and staff. The overall residential experience will be enriched through opportunities for social engagement, cultural and personal growth, leadership development and collaborative efforts. This is an academically-focused community with a connection to the Honors Program at Emporia State University. You do not need to be a member of the Honor's College to be on the Scholars Community!
