The goal of the Business Academic Residential Community is to create an academic atmosphere while providing opportunities for students to grow in and out of the classroom.
Students participating in the Business ARC should be prepared to engage in at least one specific ARC courses each term. Students can choose courses that explore business areas, meet lower division or minor requirements, or give elective credit. Students will take courses required for the major during fall and spring terms.
