About the Community
Thoreau Hall is a part of the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE). RFYE halls are designed as living-learning communities where first-year students can engage with their peers around common interests and pursuits. First-year halls offer intentional staffing and support to assist students in their transition to the University.  For information about Residential Academic Programs available in Thoreau, visit the RAP website.
