The program is a transformational series of intensive residential seminars for sophomores, made possible with a significant grant from the Mellon Foundation
. Students who are selected will live and study together, meet regularly with the seminar professors and guest speakers in their residence hall, and engage in an embedded academic travel experience related to the course at no extra charge. Each spring, all Mellon Residential Seminar students will continue the dialog with a one-quarter-credit course with their professor.
