Frequently Asked Questions

What if the student has a conflict and can't take the course?

Students will not be "kicked out" of their rooms if they don't sign up for the course. How much they will miss out on depends on the learning community:

  • The IDIS course is an integral part of the Social Justice Community, so students should make every effort to take the course. However, if it conflicts with a course they have to have or if they are in a varsity sport that practices at this time, for example, it may not be possible for them to take the course.

What if the student has decided he/she doesn't want to be in the learning community any longer?

If the student does not wish to be in the learning community any longer, they should not sign up for the course. This will not affect their room assignment.

What will they be taking in the spring?

May we suggest a student join an LLC if we believe they would be a good fit?

Absolutely. If they live in the correct geographic location, you may add them into the course (they'll need to be given course permission.) All of the LLCs, except Social Justice in Sutherland are confined to a specific wing of the hall. Students in Social Justice must live on Sutherland, but can be on any wing.

Is there space to make room changes to allow a student to join or leave an LLC?

No. All room assignments have been made and we are again at more than full capacity (using hotels again this year
