Residential Life

Clark Honors College students have an academic home in Chapman Hall and a residential home in both the Global Scholars Hall (GSH) and adjacent Bean Hall through the CHC's Academic Residential Community (ARC). Many honors college classes are held in classrooms within Global Scholars Hall, and both academic and social events take place within the residence hall on evenings and weekends.

Through the CHC ARC you will be in a living environment with fellow honors college students, many of whom will be taking the same first-year courses as you. Returning students serving as residential assistants within the residence halls are also students in the honors college, and provide a wonderful source of information, tips, and tricks on how to approach honors classes and course work, as well as on how to balance social activities with your workload.

Global Engagement


Five language programs are co-located in the Global Scholars Hall: Madarin Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, and French. In these communities you can live with other people studying the same language so that you can become more proficient through everyday communication. The Resident Assistants for each language hall, including several international students, are proficient in the language. Living in these communities can be a great springboard if you are preparing to study abroad, or are a way to maintain cultural connections if you are returning from an international experience.
