WHY LIVE IN A COLEGIO MAYOR?
By living in a Colegio Mayor, we believe you can truly make the most of your time at University. An ideal place for growing as a university student, a residence offers the opportunity to live together with students from different faculties, participate in intellectual exchanges, and learn to take personal initiative and generate positive change in our world.
WHO IS IT GEARED TOWARDS?
All university students—resident or non-resident—can benefit from and participate in residence-organized events and activities.
Professors living in the Colegio Mayor recognize the value of the shared living environment and benefit through their interactions and mentoring with residents.
Again, anyone from the university community and general public can partake in the cultural, social and academic events of the colegios mayores.
WHAT DOES AN ALUMNI COLLEGE COLEGIO MAYOR PROVIDE ME?
A Colegio Mayor is a university institution where students and professors reside together. In this unique shared living environment, students benefit from one-on-one mentoring.
The organization of music concerts, lectures, film-screenings, plays, sporting events, celebrations, etc. is dependent on resident initiatives. By living in a residence, one learns how to work in teams, respect others, and lead and inspire by example.
WHAT IS AN ALUMNI COLLEGE PROGRAM’S OBJECTIVE?
A Colegio Mayor’s goal is to foster personal development among university students who, in putting to use what they learn during university, are catalysts for positive societal change.
HOW LONG DOES ONE LIVE IN A COLEGIO MAYOR?
The ALUMNI COLLEGE program develops over three years: in her first academic year, a resident learns to acquire responsibilities and develop good habits. She also forges her personality and hones her critical-thinking skills. Later, typically over the next two years, a resident is incorporated into the student government and helps new residents. In her third year, during a ceremony held in the Museum of the University of Navarra, a resident receives a “beca” honoring her time in the ALUMNI COLLEGE Program.
