Academic Clustered Communities

ResLifeCommunityIconAcademic Clustered communities are different than our Academic Learning communities in that students choosing to live in these communities are clustered together by major or college but do not take a transition course together.

Academic Clustered communities exist to help students connect with others in their major or college and work to incorporate faculty and resources into the living environment. Students can expect to have an Academic Peer Advocate who shares their same major or is part of their same college. These communities bring in academic advisors, faculty, and other staff to host and attend events held in the hall. Many times, faculty and staff will even venture into the dining halls to eat a meal with students in these communities. These communities create an intentional environment where the focus is to help them build relationships and connections with faculty, staff, and fellow students that will benefit them as they move forward in their academic career.
