STARTING IN THE 2024-2025 ACADEMIC YEAR, Lloyd International Honors College students will have an opportunity to be part of one of FOUR Residential Colleges (RC), each with its own unique theme and open to and welcoming of all majors. Each RC is a living-learning community with on-site classes, advisors, programming, and social activities.
Only first-year Honors students who are planning on living on campus are required to live in Honors housing. Honors students living in any Honors housing may select a non-Honors roommate. Commuters are welcome in all Honors programs.
Continuing Honors students may choose to live in an RC, Gray Hall, or any available on campus residence, but they are not required to live on campus
This living-learning community is open to all majors and will be of particular interest to students who would like to explore issues in medicine, nursing, public health, personal health, wellness, and social policy locally and in other areas of the world. The North Spencer community strives to help students make connections through co-curricular programming, reflection, and shared learning as they relate to broader social impact as part of students’ personal, academic, and professional journeys.
