The Office of Residence Life is proud to offer several Living Learning Communities (LLCs) to you. Living Learning Communities are floors/suites where you can live with other students that share either a common major or interest. Faculty members are involved in programming and event planning that occur within these communities. There are many benefits to living in an LLC such as gaining more direct access to faculty, the opportunity to be involved in programs designed around your success, and living in a supportive environment with people that share common interests/goals.
