We are very excited to welcome you to campus and have been working hard to make necessary adjustments to your Learning Community experience in order to meet the guidelines put forth by health officials and the university. With lessons learned though the 2020-21 academic year and potential announcements made related to adjustments for Fall 2021, we want you to know that Learning Communities are committed to fostering a great experience for our students.
One modification to your Learning Community experience relates to designated housing that may have been previously communicated through the application process or marketing materials. University Housing continues to follow the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments. Normally, Learning Community students are required to live in designated floors within specific residence halls; however, given the direction University Housing must take in keeping student’s health and safety a priority, we are unable to guarantee students will be assigned to a specific hall. Regardless of where a student is assigned within housing, they will still be able to participate in the Learning Community, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall. The campus continues to learn and evolve from this year and looking ahead to the coming fall, in partnership with other residential learning communities and University Housing, we are committed to providing experiential components that will positively contribute to your CSU experience.
Finally, more information from your Learning Community will be sent to students regarding any orientation dates and other requirements.

Who can apply?
Students in the Warner College of Natural Resources
Information about the Natural Resources & Sustainability (NRS) Community
Warner Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) support students’ leadership development in natural resources, sustainability, and outdoor leadership. Natural Resources & Sustainability (NRS) students live and learn together; network with natural resources faculty, graduate students, student leaders, and community members; and gain professional development in natural resources and sustainability leadership. NR 192 Seminar course topics focus on sustainability principles connected to the environment, economics, and social equity. Service-learning activities focus on sustainable communities and community engagement. Students have linked course opportunities with CO 150 in special sections focused on natural resource food, energy, and water issues.
All Warner RLC students participate in professional development experiences to expand their knowledge and skills and take part in service-learning and career exploration in their chosen fields of study. At the start of the fall semester, RLC students take part in a common reading, having early move-in privileges, and participate in programming at the CSU Environmental Learning Center. Spring programming includes participation in the Banff Mountain Film Festival at CSU.
More information on community requirements and how to apply can be found on the Warner Residential Learning Communities site.
