Residential Learning Communities

Learn, explore, connect...

 International Student Event

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

-William Butler Yeats


Living on campus increases student satisfaction and success in so many ways because of the close community, connection to resources and opportunities for growth. Our Residential Learning Communities (or RLCs for short) take these to the next level by providing an enriching experience focused specific interests. By living in one of our RLCs you will live with students with similar passions while having a specialized experience. All of this and you don’t miss out on everything college has to offer.


 Our current Residential Learning Communities are:

  • Education Community: We are partnering with The Teachers College to bring an exciting residential experience for those exploring education as a career. Your experience on one of our Education floors will enhance classroom learning and connect you to other Education majors. This community is available in both the Towers and Morse Complex. Get more information about how the ERLC can ebenfit you here!
  • Scholar Community: An academically-focused floor with a connection to the Honors program. You do not need to be a member of the Honors program; only the desire to be successful academically is required! Live in the Scholar Community for an enriching experience focused on service and academic engagement. Get more information about the exciting things happening on the Scholars Floor here!
  • Global Living Community: Residents living on a Global Residential Learning Community have the opportunity for increased and intentional interactions with residents from various cultures. Residents will be able to expand their views of the world, while learning more about their own cultures. Residential Life will work in collaboration with the Office of International Education and the Office of Multicultural Affairs to create meaningful interactions and experiences for residents. Get more information on why living on our Global Living Community is so amazing here!
