What Are Learning Communities?
Learning Communities are residential-based programs designed to enhance the overall undergraduate student experience by fostering one-on-one relationships between faculty, staff and students in a close knit residence hall environment. Students are encouraged to explore intellectual, cultural, and social interests through experiential activities often linked to the academic curriculum.
The Residential Colleges
Residential Colleges (RCs) are open to students living on campus who want to live and enroll in courses with their learning community peers while developing close, meaningful relationships with faculty.
Learning Communities (LCs) are open to students commuting to campus or living anywhere on campus who want to enroll in courses with their learning community peers.
Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are open to students who want to live and enroll in courses with their learning community peers while participating in related co-curricular programs.

Many studies have shown that students living within learning communities often achieve higher grade point averages and are more likely to persist until graduation than those students not living in them. Most learning communities are limited to a small group of students, so residents have a more effortless way of finding academic resources and social networks. From halls that offer class credits to special communities focused on a theme, learning communities are bound to offer something to capture your interest.
For Housing and Residence Life purposes, we list only the residence hall locations and the class levels of participants. (Note: FR=freshmen; SO=sophomores; JR=juniors; SR=seniors).
