Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLC) are a place to live and to learn! A place where students link their interests and what they have learned in the classroom with the world around them.

Five select floors in residence have been dedicated to living learning communities. They are all gender-inclusive and designed to encourage connection among students by bringing them together based on personal interests and academic pursuits.

Throughout the semester residence staff will facilitate floor social and educational activities promoting their community theme.
