Live where you learn

The Living Learning Community (LLC) program is a unique, transformational experience for students to live and learn with their peers — creating a bond through common values and interests. Each LLC intentionally connects four pillars for success: a central theme, academic courses, growth and engagement opportunities as well as service learning hours.

As part of an LLC, you will:

  • Cultivate a sense of belonging, purpose, and connection.
  • Gain an understanding of what it means to achieve independence.
  • Plan for the goals you would like to accomplish over the next four years.
  • Take courses and attend events focused on the community's theme.
  • Learn about and leverage UWEC’s many campus resources.
  • Have access to unique volunteer opportunities.
  • Engage in opportunities to interact with faculty.
  • Lead within and contribute to the overall dynamic of the LLC.
  • Fulfill half of your UWEC Service Learning requirements.
