Living and Learning Communities held their annual Academic Achievement Reception. This reception recognized LLC students that achieved a GPA of a 3.0 or higher for the Fall 2013 semester. More than 60 people were in attendance at this reception, including mentees, mentors and directors. Across the ten LLCs, approximately 63 percent of LLC students (212) were recognized for the academic success.
The LLCs are shaped by the collective mission of the University and the Residence Life Office. A LLC is a group of freshmen students who share common academic interests, live together in a residence hall, participate in activities together, and are also enrolled in a cluster of related courses. By integrating faculty with the undergraduate residential experience, faculty, staff, and students develop a sense of interconnectedness and a mutual concern for the enrichment of their collegiate experience. In addition, LLCs provide students with quality studying, meeting, and lecture/discussion space within the residence halls.
Since their inception in 1996, LLCs have been a forum for the exchange of ideas and information within a residential setting, providing out-of-class interaction between students and their faculty and supporting academic endeavors.
