Live and Learn
Residential Academic Programs
Residential Academic Programs (RAPs) offer unique living and learning opportunities designed to help first-year students transition to college. Once you've joined a RAP, you become part of a small community on a large campus, living in a designated residence hall with other students who share similar academic interests or majors and enrolling in specific classes together. You can chose from specific RAPs for Biology, Science & Culture, Health Sciences, CNS Connect, and Sustainability or select a more general option.
