          Living Learning Communities

          EU LLC Logo 325

          Living Learning Communities (LLCs) provide students with opportunities to interact with faculty and fellow students outside of the classroom in a living environment that promotes student success.

          Students residing in LLCs perform better academically, demonstrated in higher Grade Point Averages. Living in an LLC will be one of the most influential aspects of university life. Why choose an LLC?

          • Your scholar-in-residence will help you to get connected on campus.
          • The community fosters career-based relationships with peers.
          • You will grow and develop skill sets in balancing social, work and academic commitments, time management and the creative ability to navigate and solve your own problems.
          • The community promotes career interest and career exploration in collaboration with your scholar-in-residence.
          • Spontaneous and intentional learning opportunities arise within and between living-learning communities.
