WHAT IS A RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE AND HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH RC IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Open to every major on campus, the Residential Colleges help students develop a strong foundation in critical inquiry, offering courses that support the completion of a bachelor’s degree at UNCG. Each Residential College has a distinctive theme with its own set of Core courses taught in the residence hall by RC faculty (utlc.uncg.edu/residentialcolleges/core). The RCs include students from across the University, and you are encouraged to bring your unique experiences to each of your courses. Rich in traditions, each of the Residential Colleges maintains a series of annual events and programs, both academic and social.
