Clark Honors College Community

What is the Robert D. Clark Honors College Community?

This is a community designed for students to dive into the dynamic community within the Clark Honors College (CHC), including opportunities to connect with a CHC peer mentor, interact with CHC faculty members, and participate in CHC exclusive events and programs—in addition to forming connections with other honors students. Clark Honors College students have an academic home in Chapman Hall and a residential home in the New Residence Hall, which offers a variety of living and learning spaces. Some Clark Honors College classes, especially those most often attended by first year students, may be held in classrooms in the New Residence Hall, and both academic and social events take place within the residence hall throughout each term.

Why should I choose to live in this community?

Choosing the Residential Community for the Clark Honors College puts you in a living environment with fellow honors college students, many of whom will be taking the same first-year courses as you. Returning students serving as resident assistants in the community are also students in the honors college. They are a wonderful source of information and can provide tips and tricks on how to balance social activities with your workload. This community focuses on providing honors students with increased access to academic resources, as well as supporting the development of well-rounded individuals through social programming.


Residence Hall: New Residence Hall. Students living in this community will select roommates who are also in the community.

Please note that communities can be moved to different residence hall buildings if the size or need of the community changes.
