FIRST Place Residential Learning Community

FIRST Place Residential Learning Community (RLC) is open to any student who identifies as first-generation (students - and their siblings - who are the first in their family to attend college) regardless of class year. It will enable students to connect over shared experiences and provide an opportunity for support and growth by both their peers, staff, faculty and the IC community. The community is located on the 5th floor of the East Tower.

The FIRST Place RLC goals are for students to:

  • Develop a Personal Success Plan with goals centered on involvement, academics, wellness, and relationships
  • Build a Foundational Support Network with peers and peer leaders
  • Form Meaningful Connections with faculty and staff mentors
  • Explore Campus, emphasizing classrooms & resources, to build self-confidence navigating a new home
  • Strengthen Academic Skills that will help in transition and throughout first semester
  • Reflect on Intersectional Identities that impact the college experience
