Living Learning Communities

Live. Learn. Grow.

Designing your college experience starts now! All first year students belong to a living learning or theme housing community. Living learning communities are college or academic-based and help you make friends in your major, get to know faculty, and help you achieve academic success. Theme housing offers opportunities to explore campus involvement and leadership but is not related to a specific college or major. Marshall has the following living learning communities and theme housing options for you to choose from:
