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.

Incoming first-year students can apply to participate in The Richmond Endeavor program beginning April 1, 2020. The application deadline is June 7, 2020.
