Located in the beautiful and centrally-located Sewall Hall, the Stories and Societies RAP is for first-year students in the College of Arts and Sciences with an interest in how their own narratives connect to the past, to current societies, and to the future. Award-winning faculty offer small seminar-style courses and a variety of co-curricular activities that emphasize the connections between modern culture and its historical roots. With our focus on student academic success and wellness, the Stories and Societies RAP will help you transition to CU.

"I thought I was prepared for such a big adjustment, but nobody can mentally prepare you for college…. I made it through the first few weeks of school thanks to the nurturing environment of Sewall." ~ Former Sewall Student
