Living-Learning Communities

Living-learning communities, known as LLCs, are residential communities with a special emphasis on an academic major or interest area. The Bulls Business Network, an organization for high-achieving first-year students, provides an avenue for students to enjoy early admission to the business school with special registration and other opportunities, including two LLCs targeting business majors (students must be BBN members to live in the LLCs).

Bulls Business Community

Available on Tampa campus
All incoming freshman declaring an intent to major in business who are admitted for the fall semester are eligible for the Bulls Business Network. Students will receive a letter welcoming them to the college and inviting them to enjoy the benefits of membership in the Bulls Business Network. Members of the network are admitted directly into the college, enjoy special advising assistance and, most importantly, are eligible to join the Bulls Business Community.

Leadership House shows students how to tap into their own leadership potential and creates practical experiences for them to sharpen those abilities. While engaging in the common class with their LLC peers, students deliver presentations on significant campus and community projects, meet and learn from important leaders, and attend activities such as a ropes challenge course designed to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom.
