RLC - What It Means

You might see the acronym RLC used across our website. 'RLC' stands for Residential Learning Community. It is a program started by our national fraternity in 2000 - which Drake SigEp participates in - designed to guide SigEp chapters in creating "a more powerful living-learning environment."

What It Offers Our Members

The RLC concept expands upon traditional residential college models from Oxford and Cambridge, and recent research within higher education. Students in living-learning communities have higher overall grades, are more engaged in on campus activities, and are more likely to spend their time outside of the classroom developing the life skills they need to succeed after graduation: communication skills, conflict management, decision-making, relationship building, organizational skills, project management, stress management, tolerance, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and so much more. SigEp's RLC program helps our chapter offer these experiences to our brothers, so we can deliver a membership experience of value and promote personal growth.
