Do you want to integrate your learning and your living on campus?
When you join a Living Learning Community (LLC), you become part of a community of students who live together and learn together--and you'll quickly meet folks who share your interests and dreams. You'll get all the benefits of living in a USI residence hall, plus classes taught especially for your cohort, special programs, service opportunities, and much, much more.
Also? You'll have a ton of fun.
But what IS a Living Learning Community?
LLCs are housing communities for first year students. They're grouped around themes, majors, or interests. LLC students live in a designated portions of Ruston or O'Bannon Residence Halls. You'll have a Resident Assistant (RA) and a LLC mentor who will plan activities and help you get involved on campus. LLC students take some classes together during the academic year.
Why would I want to live in an LLC?
Lots of reasons! Do you want to live in a close-knit community? Do you want to meet students who share your interests? Do you want a traditional Residence Hall experience? LLCs might be for you!
Plus, LLC students typically earn a higher GPA than other first year students and they report greater satisfaction with USI.
Wow, I'm interested. How do I apply?
