Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are residence hall communities that bring college learning into the everyday lives of students. They offer students the chance to live with others who share common interests and to interact with College faculty and staff.

Students who participate in an LLC often have higher GPAs, more positive campus experiences and are more likely to graduate on time. Potential benefits include getting to know professors and classmates better‚ greater access to academic resources‚ and specialized programs right in your residence hall.

The College of Education and Human Services has its own LLC, located in Bowyer Hall, West Campus. 

Students who live in the College of Education and Human Services LLC benefit by being among the first to receive information about events, guest speakers, career opportunities and more. They also have the opportunity to get to know their faculty and classmates earlier, have greater access to academic resources, and experience specialized programs often located right in the residence hall.

Incentives

College of Education and Human Services majors reside in Bowyer Hall, West Campus. have the benefit of being able to move in before the general population, receive various workshops about scholarships, teacher education, and participate in special events with faculty and staff from the College throughout the academic year.
