Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities are more than just a room. You gain a community of like-minded individuals who will share in your experiences and grow along with you.
Living Learning Communities are areas within residence where students with similar interests or academic programs live together on the same floor or area in residence. These communities are close knit and support the development of students through tailored academic and faculty support, networking activities, and social and educational events.

Students living in this community will benefit from peer mentoring, study groups and have access to tutoring service in residence that is an extension of the Engineering Help Center. The students enrolled in this program form a close community and become a great support for one another. Throughout the year the Senior Resident Assistants will provide programming that will help with career exploration, academic support, and involvement with engineering faculty, field trips and opportunities for self-care. Many students return to this community beyond their first year to take on a mentoring role because they have enjoyed the experience and want to help those coming into the program.
