Theme Communities

Theme communities bring together residents who share common interests and goals around a particular topic or theme.

Many of the communities interact with faculty and staff and other campus departments enriching the student experience.

Global Village

American River Courtyard

The Global Village Theme community brings together structured programming geared to support and build community among our international residents and US residents. Residents of this theme community will engage in cultural exchange programming and support students who may be interested in studying abroad. As members of this community residents have the unique opportunity to participate in specialized programs that will allow residents to engage with others who speak another language, film discussions and faculty interactions.

Honors Community

Riverview Hall (first-year) and AMC (upper-division)

The Honors Program Community brings together residents who are accepted into the General Education Honors Program and who want to live on campus. This theme community will honor the mission and vision of the General Education Honors Program by providing an “opportunity to have a challenging, innovative, and stimulating learning experience” in the residence hall. There will be classes offered in Riverview Hall and a shared community living experience that will include social programming, faculty discussions and guest speaker lectures.

The Black Cultural Excellence Community

The Black Cultural Excellence Community showcases and highlights examples of Black culture in the past and present. The theme community provides residents with opportunities to enhance their college experience through co-curricular programs and engagement with both the Cooper-Woodson College Enhancement and Martin Luther King, Jr. Center. The Black Cultural Excellence community encourages students to examine their identity through an intersectional lens and advances an understanding of Black Cultures and Pan African concepts.
