Benefits of Living Learning

Academic Success Graph

Overall, students in a Living Learning Community have retained at the University at a higher rate than average students not in a Living Learning Community

Being a part of a Living Learning Community has a number of different perks:

Common interests — you already have something in common with the other residents of your LLC, whether it's your major or interests.

Academic success — studies have shown that members of a LLC have a higher GPA than other on-campus residents. Study smarter- not harder.

Access to resources — you will have more face-to-face interactions with faculty and advisors, which can really help when you're in need of a letter of recommendation or assistance with a complicated concept in a particular course.
