A RAP is a community of students with similar interests or majors who enroll in a specific course and live together in a designated residence hall. RAPs are organized based on eligibility criteria and program structure.
Each RAP has its own program page (linked below) which includes a program description written by the instructor, the specific course/s associated with the RAP, and the designated residence hall.
Check out the variety of Honors RAPs. (some by application)
