Join a Living-Learning Community

It’s one thing to read, study, and discuss an issue in class. It's another to join a community of students who live together in a residence hall, take a class, do research, travel off-campus, and become engaged in a topic on deeper level. Students engage in the community, have deep conversations, build friendships with a diverse group of students, and find mentors in dedicated faculty members.

Applications for the 2019–20 Sophomore Scholars in Residence programs and other living-learning communities has passed. Applications are available annually from November through early February.

Incoming first-year students can apply to participate in The Richmond Endeavor program. The application deadline for Endeavor is June 1, 2019!
