What members of Living-Learning Communities are saying:

“It was beneficial to live with people who had the same interests I had. It stopped the anxiety of feeling alone in large classes and gave me people to study with.” -L-LC Student, Class of 2014

“Working with the L-LC students was a real joy. They have enthusiasm and passion for being at UAlbany and are very open to ideas from professors and the upper-class mentors.” -Hon. Joe Sheehan, L-LC professor
