Themed Communities

Living-learning communities bring together a diverse group of students, where students live and take class together, as well as have opportunities to travel, become engaged in the community, and do research together.

Each living-learning community is led by dedicated and talented faculty members who prepare the experiential learning components and provide opportunities for students to combine their academic and residential experience. Communities are designed for students to create meaningful bonds and friendships with fellow classmates and connect their interests inside and outside of the classroom.
