WKU Nursing Living Learning Community
The WKU Nursing Living Learning Community provides a residential community for peer networking, selective tutoring, mentoring and strategic programming for students who plan to enter the nursing program at WKU.
In a WKU Living Learning Program (LLP), students with similar academic or social interests live together on a residence hall floor and participate in activities tailored to their specific majors or interests.
LLPs are designed to help you connect socially, succeed academically, engage with WKU faculty, staff, and administrators, and chart your course at WKU.
“Joining the LLC allowed me to be in one of the most encouraging environments I’ve ever experienced...I had a group of 25 peers around me that I had three classes a day with, and we all lived on the same floor too. We were instant friends, and we knew so much about each other quickly. They were my first friends on campus, and we didn’t have to go through that ‘I don’t know anyone in this class’ phase. It just made it feel like home.”
In this LLC, you will earn 9 hours of Colonnade credit in your first semester (CHEM 109, PSYS/PSY 220 and MATH 115/116). In your second semester, you'll earn 6 hours of course credit (BIOL 131 and NURS 102).
