Living-Learning Community Application
Freshman learning communities (FLCs) is a distinguished academic initiative through Undergraduate Studies that focuses on supporting first year students in their successful transition to college. Students enroll in a set of courses with a cohort of 20-25. FLCs group courses together based on a particular topic such as arts and humanities, sciences, etc.
Living-learning communities (LLCs) is an initiative through University Housing that provides students with a supportive learning experience. These communities focus on providing a common experience for students who live on campus and are not focused solely on first year students. LLCs attempt to connect students to an academic area, theme or interest. University Housing staff collaborate with other university resources and departments to develop programs and services appropriate to each LLC.
Students may join both a FLC and LLC. One is not dependent on the other. University Housing has several LLCs that complement several FLC topics. In these cases, students are encouraged to do both to further enhance their collegiate experience. To join a LLC, students have to live on campus.
