Dear Current Students,

Welcome to the College of Media, Communication and Information’s Residential Academic Program—the CommRAP, as we like to call it. This is our college’s first-year community and you will meet many people here that will have an impact on your experience at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Soak it all in, your first year in Boulder will fly right by!

As the Director of CommRAP, I’m so happy you are here. Our goal is to create an environment in which you can thrive your first year on campus, and provide a foundation for you to be successful your entire journey through college. The CommRAP provides unique experiences that enrich your classroom experience in CMCI. We offer a variety of social and co-curricular activities that help build the Buckingham community (or “BuckingFam,” as you’ll hear in the halls!). You’ll have classes with other students living in Buckingham, making it easy to find study groups or people to go skiing with on the weekend.

We are excited for you to be part of our community. Welcome home!

Erin Willis, PhD, MPH
Director, CommRAP
