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.

The application deadline for the 2020–21 Sophomore Scholars in Residence programs and other living-learning communities has passed. The application cycle is November through February annually.

The application deadline for the 2020–21 The Richmond Endeavor program has passed. The application deadline was June 7, 2020.
