IDEAS Floor Immersion Community Application

IDEAS Floor Immersion Community Application

The Interdisciplinary Exploration and Scholarship (IDEAS) Floor is a community within of the First Year Residence Hall that focuses on cultivating intellectual engagement through both peers and through campus resources. Students accepted into the community will have opportunities to expand their educational experience beyond the classroom– from field trips to Atlanta to mindblowing conversations. Participating students will be drawn from a diverse range of experiences and perspectives to enhance the experience.

By joining the IDEAS Floor, students will be able to:
1. Understand and implement the core values of a liberal arts education;
2. Learn to think across and among disciplines.
3. Apply an interdisciplinary perspective to the complex problems society faces in the twenty-first century;
4. Articulate the value of their educational experience and understand how that experience informs all aspects of a fully realized ethical, personal, professional, and civic life.

If you are interested in being a part of the IDEAS Floor, please provide a response for each question. If selected, your active participation in the community is crucial to create a meaningful experience for all community members.
