Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities break the classroom barrier and place residents with similar interests within the same community so that even in their living spaces, residents are engaged in their fields of study. With relevant activities and programs, and a more constant presence of campus partners and faculty members, Living Learning Communities offer committed students not only comfortable living arrangements, but a focused and academic lifestyle as well. Available Living Learning Communities include:
