The Collins Living-Learning Center and RPS established Hillcrest apartments more than a decade ago as a way to retain juniors and seniors, who will serve as mentors and role models to younger members of the LLC community. Preference is given to current or returning residents who will be juniors and seniors the semester they move in, although those who will be sophomores also may apply. The LLC director and the RPS residence manager review applications and solicit advice and recommendations from other staff and Collins student leaders. We encourage and welcome a wide diversity of applicants. Look for application deadline dates in the Gnome News and on flyers hanging up in Edmondson.
