Living on Campus


A Learning Community (LC) is a group of students who live together on a residence hall floor with common majors, career and/or personal interest. Each Learning Community is unique in the goals and events offered, but all have a direct connections to the classroom experience, events, and opportunities for students to participate in and dedicated staff members to ensure students find their niche in a community dedicated to helping them reach their goals.
