The College of Arts & Sciences is committed to establishing diverse learning communities that provide freshmen students with opportunities to network with small groups of students who share similar interests.  Research shows us that students who participate in these communities have increased student success and satisfaction rates.  Their learning experiences extend beyond the classroom through group discussions, participation in campus activities and attendance at special events.  These communities are offered in the form of Living-Learning Communities (LLCs).  These programs combine residential living with one or two core courses.

Students who participate in living learning communities get to know each other early in the semester so they tend to sit together in classes, participate in study groups, and form lasting friendships.  They also get to know faculty members who often serve as a mentors, advisors, and references after graduation.

Registration for each community is available now. The deadline to apply is May 1st unless an oping becomes available. Please see program descriptions for details.
