Living Learning Communities

There are three types of living learning environments available to meet these specialized needs:
Living-Learning Communities (LLC) provide the opportunity to become part of a unique experience with programs and facilities to advance the interests of the community members. Each LLC is connected with a specific academic unit or department that provides support to the residents in these communities and direction for developmental activities. Current Living-Learning Communities include:
- Bridge Experience – This LLC is designed for students who have successfully completed the Associate of Arts Program. Bridge Experience programs are designed to connect students to university resources, provide social events, and allow students to explore additional career options.
