First Year Business Residential Learning Community

The First Year Business RLC has been one of the most successful academic communities sponsored in the residence halls.  Thanks to a strong relationship with the Haub School of Business, resident members of the Business RLC have had the opportunity to participate in creative programming opportunities with University faculty and staff.  In the past, students have enjoyed programs such as "The Marketing of Christmas" and special discussions with Father Rashford, the former President of SJU.  Students have benefited from in-hall study sessions, final reviews, and resume workshops and have even visited several New York accounting firms in order to get a glimpse into real-world business life. 

The Business Residential Learning Community is offered for both first-year students and for upperclass students.  Priority for membership in the Upperclass RLC is given to students who have participated in the First Year Business RLC.  For the 2013-2014 academic year, the First-Year Business RLC will be hosted in McShain Residence Center.
