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 who meet certain eligibility criteria.
“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
