Benefits of an L-LC

When you opt to become a member of a Living-Learning Community, you are choosing to be a socially and academically engaged member of the University community.

Living-Learning Communities provide you with a number of benefits, such as:

  • Living with people who share your interests
  • Quickly meeting friends and classmates
  • Built-in study groups since you are all taking some classes together
  • Having a support network of classmates, upperclassmen, faculty, Community Assistants, and Resident Assistants who can help you adjust to your new surroundings and your new role as a college student from your very first day
  • The opportunity to be immersed in the field of your choice, exploring potential professions and associated majors from the very start of your academic career
  • Having the best freshman year experience!

As a member of a Living-Learning Community you will be expected to participate in a variety of curricular and extracurricular activities designed to immerse you in your chosen interest. You will be expected to:

  • Register for the designated L-LC classes in the fall and spring semesters of your freshman year
  • Attend L-LC programming and activities
  • Participate in extra-curricular activities
