Global Scholars Hall &
Justice Bean Hall

The Clark Honors College's Academic Residential Community (ARC) has a home in both the Global Scholars Hall (GSH) and nearby Justice Bean Hall.  

Most first-year CHC students choose to participate in the honors college ARC, however you do not have to. Some honors college students choose instead to participate in one of the many other ARCs offered by the UO, or in the Carnegie Global Oregon First-Year Interest Group (FIG). That's okay. Even if you don't live at GSH or Justice Bean Hall you can still participate in the honors college events that take place there.
