Living and Learning Communities

Our Living and Learning Communities are made up of Residential Colleges and Theme Halls.

Residential Colleges

In an effort to integrate the use of all of our campus resources in the education and preparation of the whole student, we join with faculty members in several departments to offer the following residential colleges:

  • Business Residential College in Calkins Hall
  • Cultural & Global Studies Residential College in Herrig Hall  
  • Education and Human Services Residential College in Sweeney Hall 
  • Health Professions Residential College in Emmons Hall 
  • Science & Technology Residential College in Woldt Hall  
  • School of Music Residential College in Herrig Hall   

Residential Colleges offer students the opportunity to share not only a residence hall but also classes, programs and study opportunities. Each community has a spirit all its own, but all residential colleges provide an environment in which students are surrounded by friends with whom they achieve mutual success.

Theme Halls

In addition to Residential Colleges, several halls are also home to students who have a common interest or are recipients of a specific scholarship. These include:

  • Honors Program Residential Community in Larzelere Hall
  • Leader Advancement Scholars in Barnes Hall 
  • Multicultural Advancement and Lloyd Cofer Scholars in Troutman Hall 
  • Transfer Student Community in Kulhavi Hall

Note: Residential Colleges and Theme Halls comprise one or more floors of a residence hall, so students who do not have an interest in a specific academic program may still apply for these halls.​
