Business Residential College

A Living-Learning Community of Future Business Leaders

The Business Residential College (BRC) is a living-learning community for business students. BRC residents live and learn together in reserved sections of core first-year business classes. West Hall houses group study and meeting rooms where supplemental instruction and tutoring opportunities are available. Academic advisors and instructors hold office hours on-site. More about West Hall

BRC residents participate in a GBUS 1000 course which includes visits from business professionals, résumé and interviewing workshops, and events designed to introduce them to the business climate and aid in a successful first year. This course is only available to BRC residents.

Students residing in living-learning communities are more engaged in their studies, strengthening academic performance and learning skills and improving overall satisfaction. These results appear across a variety of institutions with diverse student populations.
