Natural & Health Sciences Residential Community

Welcome to the NHSRC

We are a tight knit community of scholars interested in the sciences. 

"We must address and master the future together. It can be done if we restore the belief that we share a sense of national community, that we share a common national endeavor. It can be done."

- Barbara Jordan

The Natural & Health Sciences Residential Community is a living-learning community for students majoring in one of the sciences or a health related field.  

Our learning community has one overarching goal: to make your college experience as fulfilling and successful as possible. We strive to provide students with the academic support they need to be successful, and the social connections to build lasting friendships. Membership in a learning community is a lot like being in a sorority or fraternity.  Members must be committed to the same goal, and engage actively in the community. The keys of membership in our community are responsibility, respect, and ownership. We have no special rules or requirements and ask only that members abide by these principles.

We foster your necessity for community by providing you with social and academic space
