Living-Learning Communities

Tarleton's Living-Learning Communities (LLC) feature a living environment that encourages students to explore shared academic, social and personal interests with other students.

What is a Living-Learning Community (LLC)?

A Living-Learning Community is a group of 20 to 30 students who live on the same floor, take some classes together, share a common major or interest and participate in some planned events together. It is an environment where students connect with each other, find a sense of belonging and become involved in the great things Tarleton has to offer.

Why should I belong to a Living-Learning Community?

Making the transition to college can be a challenge and becoming a part of something you are already interested in creates a smoother transition. Our communities can help you thrive.

Living in a LLC provides students the opportunity to:

  • Get to know students, faculty and staff who share your common major or interest
  • Participate in signature social and theme based events and activities
  • Preferential room placement in Heritage, Legacy or Hunewell/Annex with fellow LLC members
  • Take a minimum of one class your first fall and spring semester, with fellow members, focused on your LLC theme
  • Make studying and test preparation easier with LLC study groups
  • Interact with faculty outside the classroom
  • Gain skills and experiences for your resume or portfolio in preparation for your future career

How do I choose which community is the right fit for me?

Most of Tarleton’s Living-Learning Communities are organized around majors or fields of study. Select the Living-Learning Community that matches your major or field of study. Another option is to explore communities that are available for all majors based on a personal interest in topics like Leadership.

Participants must meet Living-Learning Community eligibility requirements and will be selected on a first come, first serve basis. Eligibility is evaluated on a student's ability to enroll in the courses identified for each Living-Learning Community.
