Living Learning Communities

Living-Learning Communities allow first year students who choose to reside there the opportunity to connect outside the classroom with fellow students and faculty/staff who share a common commitment to the theme of the community. National statistics demonstrate that students involved in Living-Learning Communities feel a better connection to campus, graduate sooner, have higher GPAs, and report significantly more satisfying experiences on campus and within the residence halls!
