Overview

As a member of an L-LC you will have a built-in community of friends and colleagues right from the start by living in the same hall and taking classes together! 

Friends: Study and socialize with fellow L-LC members. Tackle those first-year courses with your friends by forming study groups where you live!

World Ambassadors: "Learn the ropes" from peers selected from last year’s most engaged L-LC students. If you remain an active and engaged member in your L-LC, you could become a World Ambassador your sophomore year!

Community Assistant: Meet weekly with an upper-class/graduate student to plan or attend social, academic, and community service events.

Lead Faculty Member: Get to know a member of the faculty outside of the classroom at weekly dinners in your own dining hall!
