Living-Learning Communities (LLCs)
A living-learning community (LLC) is a group of students with shared interests, living and taking one of their classes together in residence hall space reserved exclusively for them. Most LLCs occupy just one floor or wing and house 25 to 45 first-year students.
If you can appreciate the academic advantages of connecting with other successful students and award-winning faculty during your first year of college, there’s an LLC for you, regardless of your major.
|Connection||Community||Eligible First-Year Students|
not limited by major or career goal
|Bryan Hall Learning Community||Students inspired by “curiosity and the desire to learn”|
|Social Justice Learning Community||Students interested in social justice, community service, activism and leadership|
|Social Science and Public Affairs Learning Community||Students interested in understanding and impacting society|
|Career Goal||Pre-Health Professions Learning Community||Students in any major who are interested in health-related careers|
|Major||Music Living-Learning Center||Music majors|
|Nursing Learning Community||Nursing majors|
|Women in Math, Science and Engineering (WIMSE)||Women majoring in math, science or engineering|
Hear about LLC life from two students who’ve experienced it firsthand: In this February 2013 interview for WFSU-TV, President Eric Barron and Issues in Education host Suzanne Smith discuss LLCs with Dr. Bill Parker of the Bryan Hall Learning Community and students Khloe Greenwood and Kaue Tozzi.
If you missed the April 8 deadline for first-round consideration:
- If you have completed a Fall/Spring Housing Contract, you may still apply to one or more LLCs any Wednesday through Saturday between April 24 and August 31. Begin with the links above to check out the websites of each LLC of interest to you.
- To apply, log in to the LLC application and copy the agreement and questions for each LLC of interest to you. (No questions for Music LLC.) When you have read each agreement and answered the questions, log back into the LLC application and submit your answers. Each LLC requires a separate submission.
- Log back into the application site once between Wednesday and Saturday of the following week to view your application status (Invited, Declined or Alternate). If your status for one or more LLCs is Invited, you may only accept one invitation. Be sure to accept promptly. Any invitation may be withdrawn if it is not accepted by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time Saturday of the week it appears online.
If you are selected as an alternate:
- Log back into the application site once each week between Wednesday and Saturday to view your application status again. If it has changed to Invited, accept promptly. Any invitation may be withdrawn if it is not accepted by 11:59 p.m. Saturday of the week it appears online.
- If your status is still Alternate, repeat Step 1 weekly. Many alternates – including some who applied very late in the process – are eventually invited into the LLCs of their choice.
- Check out each LLC’s website to understand what each program requires of its residents before you apply.
- Apply to all LLCs of interest to you.
- On your housing contract, request the halls you would prefer if you are not admitted to any LLC. Hall preferences have no impact on LLC selection and assignment.
