What exactly is a Living Learning Community (LLC)?

In each LLC 6 students will live on the same floor or building. These 6 students will be in the same program or have similar interests. This year the three LLCs will be Science, Psychology, and Recreation (19+). Throughout the year, the RA of the area, the Academic and Community RA (ACRA) will conduct programs/activities specific to the programs that the students are in, and for the Recreation LLC, they will have programs that are focused on living a life full of active recreational activities. (See What will you gain for some of the activities that may occur)

The faculty of Arts and Sciences will also engage with the communities, in an informal manner outside of the classroom. Students that are living in the LLCs will have an expectation to attend 75% of the programs, as well as participate in coming up with ideas, and planning of new events/activities.

The three LLCs offered are:

· Science (Assisi 10th floor)

· Psychology (Birch 3)

· Recreation (19+, Westwood 3rd floor)

Do I need to move to a different residence area, then my preferences?

If you already have a room assignment and are accepted into one of these communities, you will be moved to the residence area of the LLC. If you have not been placed yet, and are accepted into one the communities, your room assignment will be determined by the LLC you are in. The three LLCs will be:

· Science (Assisi 10th floor)

· Psychology (Birch 3)

· Recreation (19+, Westwood 3rd floor)
