Why Choose a Res College? Increase Your Chances of Academic Success Residential College students earn higher grades and are more likely to return to college after completing their first year.

Get to know your fellow students while completing general education classes

ACCEPTANCE TO RES COLLEGES REQUIRE A SEPARATE APPLICATION Statistics show that students who join in a Residential College Program have a 12% higher retention rate and 10% greater graduation rate than students who do not join in a residential college. If you think living in a residential college is the choice for you, remember you must submit two separate applications, one to Housing & Residence Life and a residential college application to Enrollment Management.

All first–year students take three res college classes in the fall semester and two in the spring. The curriculum makes forming study groups a breeze and helps improve your social life.
