What is a living-learning community?

A living-learning community (LLC) is a small, dynamic group learning experience connecting two or more general education or major-specific courses in an exploration of a common theme. They are limited to 20 first-year students offering them the opportunity to live in a community with individuals having similar interests and participating in programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs. Students in these communities have the opportunity to partake in academic experiences with their peers and interact with faculty, enjoying the benefits of being part of a diverse community that shares scholarly interests.

How do I sign up for a living-learning community?

First-year students interested in participating in a living-learning community should fill out the learning community registration form (attached) and submit it to the first-year experience office via mail or email. It is not required for members of the living-learning community to live on the same floor, so students that meet the criteria are encouraged to apply. Students that wish to live on campus within the LLC floor must also select the appropriate LLC option on their housing license agreement in the housing portal. Since a living-learning community is limited to 20 students, it is recommended that students submit their form prior to orientation. Please keep in mind that by completing the application, you are agreeing to register for all of the classes as a part of the desired community.

There are no living-learning communities being offered for Fall 2024.
