What is a Residential College?
31 July 2006 (collegiateway.org) — People studying the residential college model of university organization can benefit from examining a variety of collegiate self-descriptions. Although they will always differ in details from college to college, these accounts embody the collection of common principles and structures that underlie the residential college idea.
“Joining a college is much like joining a new family,” says the Butler website. “Each has its quirks but at heart it is the basis of a lifelong relationship. Our experience suggests that, whatever their background and whatever the college, students get more from belonging to colleges than halls of residence and that almost every member of the college quickly finds a role in the community and the support they need.”
