What is a living-learning community?
LLC's are a group of first-year students who share an academic interest, are housed together in a campus residence hall, and take one or more of their classes together. A special colloquium class is reserved just for LLC members. Students participate in social and educational activities related to their interests. They also have the opportunity to interact with and get to know award-winning professors. Choosing a living-learning community can be one of the best ways to make a big university feel just like home.
