When you are part of a Living-Learning Community on campus, you get more than just a room close to your classes.
What is a Living-Learning Community?
A Living-Learning Community is a group of students from the same program or faculty, who live together in the same area of residence. Each group is assigned an upper-year Peer Leader who acts as a mentor and supports their academic well-being. The community gains enhanced access to great academic and faculty programming that helps students with many of their academic needs in first year! Living-Learning students will also live near and be exposed to a variety of other first years from different areas of study so that they get the best of both worlds in their residence experience.
