Honors Living-Learning Community


hicks honors college logo


The First-Year Honors Living Learning Community (LLC) is a collaboration between Housing and the Hicks Honors College. It offers an immersive community-oriented transition to college, building a very tight-knit sense of community among Honors students who both learn and socialize together. There are co-curricular activities that tie to the Honors First Year Experience classes, as well as many that broaden the community experience. Activities serve to help students meet each other as well as get to know faculty and staff in informal settings. Students report a very close sense of community and an easier transition to college through the “family-like” atmosphere of our LLC.
