Built-In Connection 

Our Living Learning Communities (LLCs) support students throughout their first year and beyond. Students experience additional academic or co-curricular programs centered around a particular theme or topic.  

LLCs are open to all students, regardless of major, to connect with others around a shared interest. LLCs also provide more opportunities to work closely with faculty. Some LLCs have a specific academic class students will take with their LLC community, and first-year students will also be in the same First-Year Focus class as the other members of their LLC.
