Living-Learning Communities, by design, help to facilitate conversation and learning far beyond the traditional
classroom setting and allow students to engage in profound discussion, dialogue, and meaningful
interaction in the place where students spend the majority of their time—in the residence
halls. Studies show that students who participate in learning communities, in general,
and in living learning communities, in particular, have more frequent interactions
with peers and faculty, higher classroom attendance rates, higher cumulative GPAs,
a greater sense of engagement with the campus community, and higher participation
rates in faculty and peer mentorship programs than their non-learning community peers.
Living-Learning Communities promote a sense of “belonging”—to the campus, to others
who share similar interests, and to the academic community of the University. Each
Living-Learning Community has a dedicated Faculty member who works closely with the
Resident Assistant to develop engaging extra- and co-curricular activities that expand
and enhance learning! Within the LLC there is a combination of residential and commuter
students. The residential students live together within the same hall and commuters
are invited to join the community as well!
