Living Learning Communities

Live with and learn from other students who share a common interest or academic program as you!

Our Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are specialized living environments that unify the college experience inside and outside of the classroom. Each LLC is unique – centered on a distinctive theme and/or academic interest area.

LLC Benefits

  • Increase likelihood of thriving academically.
  • Development of meaningful relationships with the peers enrolled in your LLC!
  • Easier academic transition from high school to college-level courses with faculty members that work specifically with students enrolled in the LLC.
  • Continual interaction with faculty and staff both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Opportunity to spearhead events and/or programs with your resident assistant.

Living Learning Community Options

Information on the 2023-24 LLC options will be announced soon.

Living in my LLC has been one of the best college experiences I’ve had so far. I’ve met some of my best friends, as well as future business partners!

How do I Join an LLC?

When you are submitting your housing application, select your preferred LLC option. Acceptance into an LLC will be handled in conjunction with your housing assignment.

Once the Office of Residential Life notifies you of your acceptance into an LLC, you will receive information about registration for the one-credit course registration.

You will be required to uphold residential life expectations in addition to the expectations set forth in the course curriculum. This includes, but is not limited to, community service and/or co-curricular programming, attendance at campus events, and other course requirements.
