Honors LLC

A community for high-achieving students

The Honors Living Learning Community brings together talented, highly motivated students to live, learn, grow, and achieve.

The Honors LLC was a great group of people who wanted to get to know each other. Being in the LLC, it was easier to find friends with people you’re living with, which makes your living experience more enjoyable. I found my best friends through the Honors LLC. It’s also nice because when you’re signing up for honors classes, I could talk to other people in the LLC and find out what they were taking—we wound up taking the same classes and seeing each other again and again.

Programs + events

Students in the Honors LLC gather frequently for movie and game nights, community meals, field trips and more. They also have special access to Honors faculty and staff, who hold advising hours and host pizza nights just for LLC students, in Bridgman.

Living

The Honors LLC occupies the second floor of Bridgman Hall on upper campus. The LLC is the community hub of the University Honors Program, where students who live on the same floor take classes together, share new interests, learn from each other and make new connections. Students in the LLC join a welcoming, supportive community of students from a wide variety of majors and backgrounds.

LLC students also gain leadership opportunities: the LLC holds a spot on Honors Council, the faculty and student advisory board for the Honors Program. The Honors Student Steering Committee, which plans events and programming for Honors, also holds its bi-weekly meetings in Bridgman Hall, so meetings are particularly convenient for LLC members.

Learning

The Honors community grows in the classroom, where our students share perspectives with each other in our small, discussion-oriented seminars and labs. Honors LLC students all take HNRS 100, our first-year seminar, and meet each other and other Honors students in all of their Honors courses. Honors offers about 40 courses just for Honors students every semester. For recent course offerings, see the Honors Courses webpage.

One of the great things about the Honors LLC is that the students were from all different majors, but we had one connecting factor, being in Honors. This helped us to become friends even though we had different interests. I feel like this helps broaden your own interests and knowledge, and encourages you to explore other things rather than staying in one narrow lane.
