The first year of college is an exciting time for reasons too many to count however it can also be challenging. From being on your own for the first time and making new friends to the stress of being in an unfamiliar environment, your first year at college can be equally as frustrating. Living Learning Communities (LLCs) were created and implemented at colleges and universities around the world to decrease some of these frustrations by grouping students with similar academic majors and interests in a residence-hall environment for the purpose of fostering friendships and camaraderie. Students who are members of LLCs receive perks, and according to certain studies, perform better academically than students who are not.
