Learning is everywhere

Everywhere you go

According to the Morehouse College Office of Housing and Residential Education (OHRE) Mission:  “Programming services are intentionally designed to facilitate intellectual and personal growth, cultural awareness and appreciation, social responsibility, ethical leadership, and academic excellence.”  The Residential College platform at Morehouse College is aligned with the mission; to create an environment during which Men of Morehouse are expected to master a designated set of skills and competencies related to what they learn inside the classroom.

Your support system

Recognizing that a majority of student hours are spent outside of the classroom, OHRE contributes to the personal development and academic growth of our students through an array of high quality and comprehensive learning opportunities in a supportive campus environment.  All programs and services are student-centered and provide a bridge to the academic programs of the College. Students have opportunities to gain advise, guidance, and mentorship from peers, faculty, and staff. Each residential house is supported by a Residential Assistant whom is responsible for ensuring the residents successfully acclimate to their new environment while serving as an advocate for their residential needs. Each house is also supported by a Residential Academic Mentor (RAM) whom is responsible for academic support and referrals. Each RAM has a number of course expertise to provide tutorial services as well as peer academic coaching.

Residential academic programs

The living experience is very impactful on the development of college-aged students, furthermore, when a student’s academics and/or professional interests are combined with their living environment, students’ academic and social experience is enhanced. Morehouse College offers a variety of residential academic programs that allow students with similar interests or goals to live and study together in community.

All of our Residential Academic Programs (RAPs) are housed within one of our residential houses and provide a smaller, more intimate environment for the exploration of a specific field of study or interest. By thinking, studying, living and learning with others who share and understand their aspirations, students can maximize both their academic and personal experiences at Morehouse.
