The BLUE Residential Learning Program (RLP) provides space and opportunity for innovation, creation, and collaboration. Students get to experiment, meet new people, and master concepts of entrepreneurial mindset through hands-on opportunity. We all need to live and learn with an innovative mindset – join us to begin that journey! This RLP is the residential component of the larger BLUE campus initiative that is available to the Carolina community through a partnership between BeAM, Carolina Housing, and the Entrepreneurship Center for the Kenan-Flagler School of Business.
If you have questions about the RLP after reviewing this page, please contact Carmichael Community Director Nicole Buickerood: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wanted to be surrounded by other passionate students that are thinking about innovation. I like that I’ve made great friends, the programs are engaging, and the location is perfect. We get to network with interesting interdisciplinary people across campus. The RLP is diverse in interest and majors.
-- Lawton Ives, Statistics and Analytics ‘21
The members of the RLP are able to dictate which workshops they would like to be put on, and what outside speakers/mentors they would like the RLP to bring in. The BLUE RLP has allowed me to pursue my own interests with a group of people that share a similar passion for exploration and creativity to my own, and I would strongly recommend others with such a passion to apply.

Educational and social programming is powered by a partnership between the Entrepreneurship Center at Kenan-Flagler School and Carolina Housing. Feedback from BLUE students informs programming topics and format. The year culminates in a pitch competition where students work on teams to develop prototypes to pitch to a panel of MBA students and expert judges.
