A RAP is a community of students who enroll in a specific course and live together in a designated residence hall. Students in a RAP course may share a major, a preferred residence hall, and/or an interest in the course subject.
Each RAP has its own program page (linked below) which includes the specific course/s associated with the RAP, a course description written by the instructor, and the designated residence hall. RAPs vary by structure, and some RAPs are reserved for students that meet certain eligibility criteria.
Check out the variety of Honors RAPs. (some by application)
“It's a really comfortable start to Freshman year and I'm glad I can interact with my floor-mates on a deeper level than, say, hallway small talk.” Fall 2017 RAP Student
