Living-Learning Communities (LLCs)

Living-Learning Communities differ from Freshmen Learning Communities because participating students not only take a one-credit seminar and core courses together, they also live and study together in a residential setting. Each LLC is designed with specific students in mind and include services, programs and activities to enhance the academic program for those students.

Students participate in LLCs for both Fall and Spring semesters during the freshman year.   Some LLCs continue into the sophomore through senior years.

LLCs do not include any extra costs beyond regular tuition and housing fees.

A one-hour credit seminar course that is specifically designed to help freshmen students to succeed during the first-year is included with each LLC.

LLCs offered by the College of Arts and Sciences include:

The Blount Program

German House

The Parker-Adams Year
