An Undergraduate Home in Mulford Hall

The Rausser College Student Resource Center is a physical hub designed to foster academic, educational, and social activity and to provide a supportive environment for daily student life. The Resource Center is conveniently located within the College's Office of Instruction and Student Affairs, which is where students go to for all of their academic advising needs. 

By providing a wide range of materials pertaining to major/minor and departmental program information, jobs and internships, and graduate programs, and also serving as a central location to hold various programs that support the College’s standards of education, the Resource Center exists to build community for students, staff, and faculty alike.
