Living and Learning Communities- Psychology Majors

The Arts and Sciences (A&S) Living and Learning Communities (LLC) is located in Weldin Hall and gives students the opportunity to become part of a unique experience that extends their learning beyond the classroom. Psychology majors will live alongside majors in Sociology, Communication Studies, Journalism, Public Relations, Film, and Writing/Rhetoric. LLC's offer programs that reflect the interests of the community members, host study sessions and provide academic and social support to students through an on-site Resident Peer Mentor and Resident Advisors. By being part of an LLC, students will have the opportunity to experience a more personal and less formal way of learning. They will live amongst other students who share the same interests and will build strong relationships with their peers.

Why would being part of the A&S Living and Learning Community be beneficial to me as a student and a person? Why would I choose to live in a residence hall with people who have majors similar to mine?

Benefits of living in the A&S LLC include:

  • Making new friends with similar academic interests
  • Learning success skills and strategies
  • Gaining an increased knowledge about your major and career options
  • Forming study groups and sharing learning experiences
  • Enjoyable and educational in-house programming/events
  • Personalized interaction with faculty
  • Guidance and support from A&S upperclassmen LLC students

    Who is eligible to be a part of this experience?

    LLCs are recommended for all incoming first year students. Only first year students are eligible for the Psychology LLC.
