What's The DEAL?

The DEAL intentionally fosters Diversity, Engagement experiences, Academics and Leadership among selected freshman students cross campus.

Two Parts to The DEAL

The first part begins with a five-day early campus move-in where relationships are formed and college and career readiness skills are introduced.

The second part of The DEAL allows connections between DEAL students to continue through the academic year as students live and learn together in McNerney Hall.

There is shared oversight for the DEAL LLC by selective campus programs and offices that have a vested interest in student development and leadership.

Eligibility for Early Move-In and Living and Learning Community

As a student eligible for participation in LEAD by Design, you also are eligible to participate in the FREE DEAL Early Move-In Program.

Application Deadline: Annually on July 27
