Business residential community students have the opportunity to beat the crowds and move in a day early on Wednesday, September 19, 2018. After participating in an Unpack the Quack shift the morning of Thursday, September 20, students will head to a mandatory residential community orientation at 11:00 a.m. There they will meet Lundquist College's associate dean for undergraduate programs, Collette Niland, as well as the members of the undergraduate programs and Earl housing complex support staff that will help guide them through their first year.
The goal of the University of Oregon's academic residential communities is to create an atmosphere focused on academic success. Students participating in the College of Business Residential Community will take classes together, including the following in the first term:
- BA 101: Introduction to Business. 4 credits. Required for admission to Lundquist College of Business. Counts as a social science course for the UO general education requirements.
- BA 199: Maximizing Business Education. 1 credit. Orientation to the pre-business major. Focuses on understanding the requirements for admission to the business/accounting major, developing relationships that contribute to academic and professional growth, and determining next steps to pursuing academic goals.
During the following terms, students will focus on:
- Optional business-themed courses focused on major exploration
- Other required pre-business courses
- Courses satisfying general education requirements, such as math and writing
If you already have BA 101 on your transcript, chat with an advisor during new student orientation.
