The Sophomore Residential Colleges offer a fun and engaging community where students have an opportunity to integrate their lived experiences with their academic learning with experienced faculty members. Students will also have the opportunity to live together and engage with others outside of the classroom to help them explore, reflect, and act to demonstrate who they desire to become as global citizens. More importantly you will have the opportunity to forge long lasting relationships. While each Residential College has a particular focus, students involved come from many different places, each bringing their different points of view, life experiences, hopes, desires, and interests.
