Clark Honors College Community

What is the Robert D. Clark Honors College Community?

This is a community designed for students to interact with faculty members, peer advisors, and visiting scholars, in addition to other honors students. Honors college students have an academic home in Chapman Hall and a residential home in Global Scholars Hall and Justice Bean Hall which offer dynamic learning environments with a variety of living and learning spaces. Many honors college classes, especially those most often attended by first year students, are held in classrooms within the Global Scholars Hall, and both academic and social events take place within the residence halls on evenings and weekends.

Why should I choose to live in this community?

Choosing the Academic 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 approach honors classes, as well as balancing 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 students through social programming.


Residence Hall: Global Scholars Hall and Justice Bean 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.
