Living Learning Community

What is a Living Learning Community?

The Living Learning Community is a new way of experiencing your first year of college. Incoming psychology majors have the opportunity to live on campus and take two psychology courses together in the fall semester including First Year Seminar and Human Growth and Development. The focus of the L.L.C. is to provide a community-oriented environment where students can learn about the university, get involved, make friends, be supported, and succeed academically! The Department of Psychology collaborates with other campus departments to develop specialized student events and programs to facilitate intentional community and individual relationships in and out of the classroom and further impact students’ college experience.

3 New Learning Communities Launching in Fall 2019

The Psychology Learning Community options for 2019-20 include:

  1. Psychology Living Learning Community (LLC) - intended for incoming freshman planning to live on campus. This community will place fellow psychology majors in living units together and co-enroll students in 3 core courses during the academic year (two in the fall, one in the spring).
  2. Psychology Commuter Student Learning Community (Commuter LC) - intended for incoming freshman commuting to campus. This community will form close relationships with other commuting psychology majors through co-enrollment in three core courses taken together your first year (two in the fall, one in the spring).
  3. Psychology Transfer Student Learning Community (Transfer LC) - Intended for transfer students. This community will form close relationships with other transfer psychology majors by co-enrolling in two upper division psychology courses not yet taken at a community college (one in the fall, one in the spring).
