Fall 2021 Residential Learning Communities

Engineered for Success

Engineering is a challenging degree choice and requires students to quickly learn how to manage their work and time, as well as their own learning process to be successful; therefore, the Engineered for Success Residential Learning Community (RLC) focuses on providing students with direct access to an engineering student mentor and an engineering advisor throughout their first year. Students are exposed to a support system that encourages development of good academic habits, learning about engineering as a degree and career choice, and getting connected with the engineering community at Auburn. The final project in the associated first year seminar course requires students to describe their own process of becoming a successful engineering student. Students in the Honors College may apply for the RLC and live in Little Hall (Upper Quad, Honors College housing). All students – including Honors College students – may apply for the RLC and live in Tiger Hall in the Village.

Be Well

focuses on college student health and wellness and is designed by the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness Services. This Residential Learning Community (RLC) provides the opportunity for students to engage in community and to learn about wellness topics as they relate to success in college and beyond. Application of study strategies as they relate to the first year seminar content area will be examined. As a result, students will learn how to apply study strategies, time management techniques, and utilize their personal strengths in a holistic way. We will specifically look at how happiness, gratitude, and positive well-being lead to better quality of life for students and ultimately create the circumstances that allow for success in college. Students in the Be Well RLC will live in Teague Hall in the Quad neighborhood.

Discover Auburn: Out of State

Are you from out-of-state? Worried about the transition being so far from home? The Discover Auburn: Out-of-State Residential Learning Community is designed for students who are looking to discover Auburn while connecting with other students who are also far from home. Students will get to know their new home while learning traditional first year seminar topics like time management, study strategies, campus involvement, and career preparation. This learning community is designed for students who are at least 6 hours from home. Students in the Discover Auburn RLC will live in Teague Hall in the Quad neighborhood.
