Residential Life & Housing

Rachel Carson College supports a volunteer garden, where students can learn more about sustainability.

A special welcome to all students to the Rachel Carson College (formerly College Eight) student life site!

The living-learning community at Rachel Carson College is enriched by our commitment to provide you with opportunities to further your understanding of social justice and the many ways this imperative intersects with our college theme of Sustainability.  

I invite you to become familiar with all that we have to offer as this community is integral to your educational experience.

There are many ways for you to get involved in the co-curricular activities at the college whether through the core course, theme-based residential programs, or various organizations across campus, you will find ways to learn with others what it means to live in a socially responsible community.

I look forward to you sharing your ideas and talents with us as together we continue to create Rachel Carson College!

With Best Wishes,
Susan Welte
