Frequently Asked Questions


 

There is no additional cost for a Living Learning Community.

However, some LLCs require students to register for specific classes; please refer to the individual LLC descriptions for additional requirements.

LLCs are an ideal way to make friends with peers who have similar interests.  Living in an LLC also gives you access to campus and faculty resources to enhance your educational experience! Research shows that students who participate in an LLC have higher academic success rates, higher college graduation rates, higher levels of satisfaction with their college experience, and an easier time connecting with their peers.

Living Learning Communities are designed to encourage and support you as a student!  We strongly encourage all LLC members to participate in LLC events and activities, as their academic schedule permits.  Time commitment can vary, but expect a minimum commitment of 1-2 hours for a regular week. The more involved you are, the more you will get out of the experience!  

Some LLC's are academic year specific. Refer to  the individual LLC descriptions for more specific information.

Find which LLC is right for you--an LLC tied to your major, extracurriculars or just something you are interested in! Refer to the individual LLC descriptions to find the LLC for you!
