Overview of Residential Commons
The Residential Commons is an integrated academic and residential experience. The Commons bring live-in faculty and staff members, resident assistants and other student leaders together to create communities of support. Faculty members associated with each commons have the opportunity to interact informally and mentor students.
Each commons has unique traditions, gatherings and meaningful activities that build community and long-term bonds among residents. Students encounter a close-knit, living and learning environment where a rich intellectual, social, and community life flourishes.
Components of the Leadership Team
The Residential Commons each have Resident Assistants, Peer Leaders, Residential Community Chaplains, Commons Councils, and the Assembly.
