Top 10 Reasons

Here are the top 10 reasons as detailed by current RLC members:

  1. RLCs rock because of the intense competition between RLCs! Most dorms at other schools wouldn't compete against each other, but RLCs create competition which I love. -- Mark Rogers
  2. Living in an RLC at Santa Clara is great because when you miss home, you often feel better thanks to a new family that has been created in your floor. -- Jessica Kim
  3. Lounges, Kitchen, Volleyball Court, Benson Points, Ads for awesome socials! -- Megan Williams
  4. It’s great to live in an RLC because of all the activities and events you can do with your floor/ community. -- Kelly Quist
  5. You are surrounded by 60 of your closest friends. -- Todd Lane
  6. I met one of my best friends at SCU in Communitas my freshman year and during our years here at SCU we've become nearly inseparable. -- Kristen Lee
  7. CFs are awesome -- Andy Victor
  8. You don't have to cook for yourself. There's Benson. -- Michael Erkelens
