What is a Special Interest Community?
Special Interest Communities provide an opportunity for students sharing common interest or passion to learn and develop as a community. This living arrangement creates a unique community with the opportunity to engage and build relationships with peers with similar interests and/or lifestyles. Special Interest Communities offer intentional programming that encourage personal and professional development. Each community will have a dedicated Resident Assistant and Professional Staff to foster community development, lead engaging programs, and partner with other departments and offices on campus to offer exciting events and workshops.
