What if your living arrangements harmonized with your life goals and aspirations? What if you could live with a group of students who share the same passions as you? What if you could meet with nursing faculty and students in an informal setting outside of the classroom?
Does this sound too good to be true? Be a part of College of Nursing (CON) First-Year Living and Learning Community, located in Hillside Hall.
Living and Learning Communities (LLC) are located in designated residence halls and are intended to give students the opportunity to become part of a unique experience, with programs to support the interests of the community members. By being part of the LLC, first-year students will have the opportunity to experience a more personal and less formal way of learning!
Why would being part of the CON 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?
