Residential Learning Communities

LLC LOGO

 

A top priority for our students is to ensure they are successful in their transition to college. Research shows us that students who reside in Living Learning Communities and Theme Living Communities are provided more opportunities for interaction with faculty outside of the classroom, receive greater academic support opportunities, cultivate a greater connection to the University, and have a stronger sense of belonging within a community. All these factors ultimately lead to greater success as a student.
