About Living Learning Communities


Living Learning Communities (LLCs) provide unique environments where select groups of students share common residential and learning experiences. Based on disciplinary and interdisciplinary themes, LLCs create intentional links between academic, social, and residential experiences.

Benefits

  • Living with students who share interests, passions, and challenges
  • Convenient, natural study groups
  • Special events and off-campus fieldtrips
  • Targeted academic enrichment
  • Networking opportunities with faculty
  • Early arrival to campus (first-year)

Partnerships

There are many partnerships across campus and within the community to support the Living Learning Communities. Partnerships are also created among students as they have similar majors and/or academic interests, live and learn together. For 2013, there were approximately 500 first-year students participating Living Learning Communities, which was 50% of the first-year class, living on-campus. Each community is facilitated by Residential Life/Learning Communities staff (Resident Directors, Resident Assistants and LLC Mentors), faculty partners (also Faculty in Residence), The Office of Student Retention, Prevention & Outreach Services and The Student Learning Center. The faculty partners interact informally on a regular basis and also create unique and useful programs within the residence halls. They provide information sessions, help students develop and to get to know students on multiple levels.
