Ogden College of Science & Engineering Living Learning Communities
In a WKU Living Learning Community (LLC), 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. LLCs are designed to help you connect socially,
succeed academically, engage with WKU faculty, staff, and administrators, and chart
your course at WKU.
Although each LLC has unique opportunities, they all share the same vital purpose
and goal: nurturing and developing a prosperous Hilltopper student to become engaged
with other students and faculty throughout our campus.
Students in our Ogden LLCs will live on the same floor together with fellow members
of their specific group (Health Professions, Engineering or Agriculture) in Hugh Poland
Hall. Hugh Poland is one of the most affordable residence halls on campus. It is
in a very convenient location on the south end of campus right next to the Preston
Center, close to the Den Restaurant and the Pit Stop Convenience Store, and in a location
with ample access to parking.
Students must be first year freshman majoring in either a Health Profession, Engineering
or Agriculture. They must take a one credit hour University Experience course in
the field of their major and participate in the LLC activities of their major. There
is typically one activity per month during the semester (a meal together, a visit
to a facility, etc). Involvement in the LLC and any related activities is at no additional
cost to the student. If there is a roomate preference, the roommate must also be
in the same major and be willing to participate in the LLC. If there is no roommate
preference, students will be paired with another LLC student within their area of
*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.
