World of Business

Designed for Business and Accounting intended majors, this Living-Learning Community introduces students to the academic and social aspects of the field of Business. Students in this Living-Learning Community live and take classes with other freshmen who share an interest in business or accounting and are introduced to the academic and social expectations of a career in business through co-curricular activities.

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