Business Residential Learning Community

Business RLC

The Business Residential Learning Community will introduce you to the tools, knowledge and perspectives you need to become a leader within the business profession. Whether it’s touring local businesses and meeting with management teams, attending a resume workshop to help you prepare for applying for business internships and other employment opportunities, or attending social events with business students, you will benefit from getting a deeper look into possible career paths for you.

What is a Residential Learning Community?
It is an awesome opportunity to live in a freshman hall with other students (20-30) who share your academic major or interests. You will be able to attend social and academic programs together, interact with faculty outside of the classroom, and get to know an upper division Community Mentor (student) who shares your major or career path.
What are Common Courses?

By participating in the Residential Learning Community program you benefit from taking one or two classes with others in your community. These “courses in common” allow you to attend class with other RLC members and form study groups around those classes. For this RLC, those courses include:

Fall semester:

  • MGT 101 – Introduction to Business: This course introduces the functional areas of business management and how they interrelate to maximize wealth in a socially responsible way.
  • ISM 120 – Introduction to Computer Information Systems: introduces computer and information systems, including the development and hands-on use of applications designed for communications, decision support, and database management
Spring semester:
  • ACC 205 – Legal, Ethical, Global, and Regulatory Environment of Business: This course introduces the basics of the environment of business, including legal and ethical issues and the regulatory and global environment of business that affect business policies and decisions.
Why do I want to participate in an RLC?
Over and over again, we hear from our RLC students that being a part of the RLC program helped them find future friends and experience a smoother transition to college their freshmen year. By participating in an RLC, you will learn about campus resources and become more involved in your university experience. And this involvement has consistently led to RLC students remaining at the university in greater numbers, and more RLC students successfully graduating from the university.
How do I sign up?
Simply select your preferred Residential Learning Community on your online housing application. If you qualify for and are selected to participate in that RLC, we will assist you by placing you within the RLC of your choice in a freshman hall, and matching you with a roommate within that same RLC. That’s it! You can relax knowing your housing space and roommate selection are being taken care of for you.
