Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities (LLCs), are a great way for students to be a part of a close-knit community and develop bonds with their faculty members. Each LLC has two core components: students are either in a common related course or committed to a specific theme and they live together in the residence hall. The residential space gives students a chance to really immerse themselves in their interests and develop meaningful relationships with their faculty.
Students living in LLCs have a space outside the classroom to watch films, play games, and hold impromptu or planned discussions on class topics. LLC residents are often able to attend special community related events or field trips to places such as local and regional museums, musicals, tea houses, camping, and lectures.
E-town currently has eight LLCs and plans to expand the program in the future.
How do I join a LLC?
It’s easy! If you are an upperclassman, you will receive the chance to join the multi-cohort LLCs each spring. If you are an incoming first-year student, you can join the themed based LLCs (Friends of Asia, GEMS, Liberal Arts Residence) by selecting them in your housing preference profile that you can access after June orientation.
If you are a first-year student who signed up for one of the two First-Year Seminar LLCs ( Simple Living, From Opera to Broadway), you will automatically be placed in those based on your first year seminar preferences. If you are an incoming Honors student or Physics & Engineering student, you will automatically be placed on those floors.
Can I select my roommate if that person does not want to participate in the LLC?
It depends on the community. For all of the communities, with the exception of Honors and PiE, there are a few slots for non-LLC roommates. These will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. For students living in Honors and PiE, these halls are for these students only.
