Residential Commons Leadership Corps

The Residential Commons Leadership Corps (RCLC) is made up of students who are shaping and promoting the Residential Commons experience at SMU. The RCLC works with Faculty in Residence, Resident Community Directors and resident assistants to develop unique traditions for each commons that will foster community and long-term bonds among residents.

An update from Tien, a member of the Residential Commons Leadership Corps and a second-year student majoring in advertising and public relations: 


To all of our active readers, thank you so much for joining us on our journey towards retiring the current residential system and bringing in Residential Commons. I know for some, this will be a tough change. For others, this is the change they have been waiting for. Nobody really knows how things are going to play out and which traditions are going to stick and which aren’t, but it’s important to remember that Residential Commons will only work if we all put effort towards making it a legacy. Let’s make this a tradition that SMU students, faculty, and alumnae are proud to identify with.

The RCLC members have been working hard to ensure the smooth implementation of Residential Commons next semester, but it’s up to us as Mustangs to be proud of what’s to come. Step away from what you’re comfortable with and embrace change. Pony Up Mustangs to the beginning of a bright and promising era.
