First-Year Living Learning Communities


Students with similar academic and co-curricular interests live and learn together, with over 850 students participating each year.

Each Living Learning Community is facilitated by Resident Assistants, Resident Directors, LLC Mentors, Faculty Partners and the Coordinator of Living Learning Communities. Faculty partners interact informally on a regular basis and also create formal programs, information session and get to know students on many levels.


There are two dedicated tutors for the Living Learning Communities Program; one for Writing and one for Mathematics. They hold hours right in the residence halls. Hours are also offered within the Department of Mathematics and The Student Learning Center. Many of these hours take place in the evening, allowing students to take advantage of tutoring around their schedules.
