ECCOO Residential Learning Community

The Early College Credit Offers Opportunity (ECCOO) RLC is a community of incoming first year students who are entering college as a first year student with at least 30+ college credits. This is a group of students who are in a unique position to enter Campbell University as a first year student, but are enrolled in junior level courses with upperclassmen students.

Students in this RLC will live together in Hedgpeth Hall suites while participating in a Campbell University Freshmen Seminar (CUFS) course together. Students who participate in a course and live together are more likely to successfully acclimate to college life and have a higher GPA. The ECCOO community will have support from their Faculty Fellow, a staff or faculty member who has expertise when working with students who enter with early college credit.

Living in this community is a great way for students to connect with peers on a similar path, lay a solid foundation for academic success, and take advantage of all Campbell has to offer during their short time at CU.

Join Our Community

The ECCOO RLC is an opportunity for a select group of first year students to live and study together while taking upperclassmen courses.  Members of this community will live with a Community Mentor, upperclassmen student, who also came into college with 30+ credits and will be able to help guide them throughout their first year. The opportunities provided throughout their academic year will provide tools for academic success, social stability, and continued preparation to plan out their college career and beyond.
