The green college with a dragon as a mascot


College 3 is known as the sports college. Often, the students make up the majority of the sports teams on campus and this is helped by its proximity to the campus gym and tennis and basketball courts. Students of College 3 really enjoy the annual sports event, the Jacobs Games, but are also known to show the artsy side at Art On!, where they always compete for the top places! The students work hard as well, though – the large QSA is full every night with students from not only College 3 but also other colleges coming to make use of the productive environment. College 3 is the green college and the mascot is the dragon, which you can see at many campus events! Like dragons, they are strong and fearless!

College 3 Resident Mentor: Robert Rennie

Robert Rennie has been Resident Mentor in College 3 since August 2016. Before this, he had the role of College Coordinator for 9 years. He is also the coach of the women’s and men’s football teams at the university. Robert graduated with a degree in Modern Languages and Education in 2007 and has gained wide-ranging experience at Jacobs since then. He spent two years in Bremen as a student as well as one semester at the university of Perpignan, so he is aware first-hand of the problems and challenges that students need to overcome when leaving their home to come to Jacobs and can use these experiences in this role.

“The most rewarding part of the Resident Mentor position is being able to give our young adults the best advice I would have wanted to receive when I was in their situation and seeing how our support really effects the development of our students and plays a part in their success here.“

Robert Rennie, Resident Mentor
