Defining Features of Themed Communities

Themed Communities are open to any rising sophomore, junior, or senior at the University and are centered around a topic that the community explores. Students apply to be part of a themed community and if selected:

  • Live in Lakeview residence hall, with the other members of that themed community
  • Participate in experiential learning and other activities led by an advisor centered around that theme
  • Build connections with peers, faculty, and staff who are also interested in the same topic
