Res Life Living-Learning Communities
What is a Living-Learning Community?
Students who choose to live on campus are offered the opportunity to take part in seven different living-learning communities. Living and learning communities are unique environments in which groups of students share a common residential experience.
Why would I want to be in one?
Many of the communities also share a common academic experience. Students in each living-learning program are housed together in designated villages and either take pre-determined classes together OR engage in community involvement programming together.
IF YOU SHARE ACADEMIC GOALS AND INTERESTSThese communities help students create a link between their lives in the residential community and learning experiences in the classroom. An environment is created that is conducive to building a strong, cohesive peer support system that serves the students throughout their academic and professional careers.
Academic Themed Communities Are:
- Freshman Interest Group (FIG),
- Freshman Year Experience (FYE)
- MOSAIC (Making Our Space An Inclusive Community).
