The mission of the Living Learning Programs is to develop an environment where students can be academically and socially successful, engage in a variety of developmental activities, and utilize additional support services within our residential communities.
Living Learning Communities and Themed Communities
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are first year residential communities that are designed to connect students with academic resources for their respective major, college, or department. Special programs and events are often created for each of the communities that encourage student growth and development outside of the traditional classroom setting.
Living Learning Communities available for the 2019-2020 Academic Year:
- Aeronautical Science (AS LLC): Designed to build a strong community between first year Aeronautical Science (AS) students and other faculty and staff in their department. This community provides additional support and learning opportunities focused on helping students further their AS career.
- College of Business (COB LLC): Geared towards Business students so that they may live and learn side by side. Unique networking events, socials, and community building with the O’Malley College of Business (COB) faculty and staff greatly expand upon the residents’ in-class experiences.
