Learning Communities

Residential Learning Communities, or RLCs, debuted at Marietta College in 2004 as a pilot program that linked English composition with public speaking. The program introduces freshmen to the expectations of higher education while grouping two complementary subjects together. The College expanded the program in the Fall of 2007 to include second-year students.

What Students Say About RLCs:

The best aspect of the RLC was the relationships that we formed with one another that helped foster academic growth. For the classes that we took, it was really beneficial to be friends with the people in the class; it helped us encourage one another, and it also generated positive class discussion.

Social benefits: being able to create friends that shared the same work ethic and responsible behavior as I do.
