Living Learning Communities (LLC) offer unique residential experiences by merging classroom learning with students' out of class experiences. Students with a common academic or social interest will live together on the same floor or wing of a residence hall allowing the community to have focused programs and a shared interest amongst community members in a specific topic area.
In some Living Learning Communities, students will also share an academic course. This gives students easy access to study partners, floor programs focused on the living learning community, and additional access to faculty members. Residence Life offers multiple living learning communities for students with a variety of interests to enhance their academic experience.
