What members of Living-Learning Communities are saying:

“The best thing about being a part of a L-LC at UAlbany was living with other people who shared my interests and being able to work outside of class on homework together.” -L-LC Student, Class of 2014

“The comfort level that was created by those seamless interactions with the upper-class students and me built a very solid foundation for the students to excel as the semester went forward.” -Hon. Joseph Sheehan, L-LC Professor
