Foundations RAPs Fall 2013
If you are interested in taking a class with people who you are living with, a Foundations RAP could be a good choice for you. Choose from a variety of courses that enable you to explore and/or move forward in meeting your General Education requirements and possibly requirements for some majors as well.
Foundations RAPs do not include a RAP seminar.
When you join this RAP you will...
Enroll in one General Education class - either a small section of a lecture OR seats in a class taught on the Main Campus with a discussion section dedicated to students in the RAP (the discussion section may be on the main campus or in the residential area)
Share your living-and-learning experience with a community of students with similar interests
Have the option to choose a section of College Writing 112 in the residential area either Fall or Spring semester (if interested and as available).
If you are studying or interested in one of the many majors related to health sciences, check out the Health/Life Sciences Foundations RAPs too.
Foundations RAPs are open to students with a declared major as well as those who are still exploring major options.
