Benefits of Association

There are numerous benefits of being associated with a residential college. Associates are immediately part of a 300-450 person community of incredibly diverse, talented, and caring individuals ranging from first year students to emeritus faculty members. Each college has magisters, resident associates (RAs), a college coordinator, an amazing group of student leaders, and other associates from across campus, all of whom are committed to the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the college. However, the most rewarding part of being an associate is the opportunity to meaningfully engage with and mentor our amazing students. New associates are typically astounded by the wide range of ways to do so through residential college activities, but Associates are encouraged to bring new ideas to the community as well. The most seamless way for associates to remain engaged in the community is to visit the college for lunch and enjoy casual conversations. Lunch meals are free for associates, so staying involved is easy. Associates are also invited to two Associates Nights, one in the fall and one in the spring, to thank the associates for their involvement, and Outstanding and Distinguished Associates are invited to the President’s House for a reception in the spring.
