By joining an LLC, students assume responsibility for creating their own learning opportunities around the house theme. Each LLC member is expected to actively participate in the creation of a program plan and take initiative to implement the ideas. This process begins in the spring after being accepted into the LLC program.
Each LLC is advised by at least one faculty member or administrator. These faculty sponsors offer advice and guidance in the development of formal house programs and informal opportunities to learn about the theme. Each Living Learning Community house receives a program budget of $300/semester from the Office of Residence Life. Assistance with managing budgeting, program planning, and other aspects of implementing the house syllabus is provided by Residence Life staff.
Living-Learning Communities are located in 3 person College-owned off-campus houses on Monroe Street (near the Kirby Sports Center). Each house includes ample space for hosting events in the living room, preparing meals in the full-size kitchen, and interacting with neighbors in the backyard.
