What is a Residential College?
At East Stroudsburg University, Residential Colleges integrate in-class learning with out-of-class experiences in living settings.
With an emphasis on quality student relationships with faculty, residential colleges promote shared learning and engagement opportunities where students live.
In partnership with Residential and Dining Services, College Deans and faculty coordinate all programming efforts throughout the academic year.
Residents take advantage of academic advising, tutoring services, core curricular classes taught within the residence hall, and organized opportunities for social activities that promote learning and self-development.
