LLC2

Are you looking for friends with the same interests? How about easy access to your advisors and professors? Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are communities that allow students who share a common interest in academics, social and cultural issues, or other topics, the opportunity to live together on a floor. Residents of LLCs will be assisted with getting the resources they need to accomplish their academic goals and will create life-long relationships with faculty, staff, and other students living on the floor and at Marshall University.

What are the advantages of participating in a Living-Learning Community?

  • Improved GPAsIMG_3117
  • Connect with faculty & staff
  • Great resume builder
  • Networking opportunities
  • Social programs catered to your academic needs
  • Interact with students who share the same academic and personal interests
