Want to live with students who have similar interests? Or live next to students who have similar majors? Learning Communities are simply groups of students who live together in our high rises and connect through shared academic or personal goals. Each community is different, but all offer the opportunity to make friends and achieve goals important to you. 

Why live in a learning community?
  • Ability to develop close-knit relationships and friend groups
  • Your neighbors have a similar interest or major as you do
  • Amazing networking opportunities with faculty and staff
  • Fun events designed specifically for your learning community
  • Between 60-70 people per community
Learning community options:
  • Engineering Leadership Learning Community (ELLC): This community provides first year engineering students with a well-rounded and unique experience linking engineering with leadership skills. 

  • Health Professions Learning Community (HP): Meet other students studying majors in the Health Professions to help you success in school, and develop a strong network of future colleagues.

  • Wellness Learning Community: A positive and supportive space for students who want to avoid alcohol, tobacco, and drugs on- and off-campus. This group of students also supports the President's council for campus well-being, which addresses social, physical, and mental health.

Apply here. Apps are due by February 24, 2021.
