The Residence Life Department will begin accepting applications for 2014-2015 Residential Learning Communities beginning Oct. 1. Applications due Dec. 20, 2013
A Residential Learning Community is a place where students can select to live together and learn about a particular subject under the guidance of a faculty or staff member. With assistance from Residence Life, students set learning goals for their group and track these goals as the year progresses. Those who meet their goals are eligible to renew their learning community in future years.
For faculty members who want to provide an immersive environment in which students can learn, an RLC can be a tremendous asset. For example, a professor in modern languages could propose a community in which students agree to speak only Spanish; film students could propose that their RLC work together on a movie; or a student organization could plan a community that works toward the group's mission.

Living on Campus is one of the best and most rewarding experiences of your university career. Students who are younger than 21 years of age and have earned less than 60 hours of course work reside and dine on campus and have the opportunity to discover the full university experience.
The Residence Life Department exists as an integral part of the educational experience and academic support services of Stephen F. Austin State University.
