Residential Learning

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities, known as LLCs, are residential communities with a special emphasis on an academic major or an area of interest. In an LLC, you will meet friends with similar majors and interests, connect with faculty and staff right in your residence hall, and enjoy experiences designed especially for you. There's no better way to learn something than to really live it!
