For more than fifty 50 years RAP has been a great way for incoming students to begin their college careers. Although many features have changed over the years, it has always been true that when students join a RAP, they become part of a small community on a large campus.
Students who join a RAP consistently report that they become deeply connected to their academic studies and develop lifelong relationships with their RAP peers and instructors.
Join a RAP and start your UMass experience with academic engagement and new friends.
You will create memories you will never forget!
