Life in the Residential Commons

Make the SMU Life Your Own

Your interactions and learning experiences outside class are an important part of the whole college experience. To this end, each Commons has a team of faculty and staff who work together to create a community with an academic focus and social opportunities. The team includes a live-in faculty member (called a Faculty-in-Residence or FiR), a Residential Community Director (RCD), as well as Resident Assistants (RAs) and Faculty Associates.
