Residential Learning

Live and learn with students who share your interests

A Residential Academic Program, or RAP, creates a learning community of first-year students with similar majors or academic interests. For your first year, you’ll live with this group in a residence hall. You’ll have one or more classes in common with everyone, and some of those classes may be taught right in the residential area. RAPs are voluntary, but we urge all entering first-year students to take advantage of them. Click here for information about campus-wide RAP options for the 2015-16 academic year.
