In an effort to ensure that First-Year students have a smooth transition into university life, the Office of Residence Life facilitates opportunities for students to become exposed to essential intellectual and co-curricular opportunities that will allow them to become engaged during their time living on-campus. We provide outside of the classroom events and experiences for students that enrich their learning outside of the classroom!
The UMass Lowell Core Curriculum includes seven Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) that are critical components of every student’s educational experience. The Office of Residence Life enriches the residential experience through weaving these Essential Learning Outcomes throughout our Residential Curriculum. Our goal is to provide intentional programs to our First-Year students based upon their developmental needs through Learning Objective based programming (see below).
Enriching your learning is simple! All you have to do is engage in the programs created by your Resident Advisor (RA)!
The Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs):
