For Blugolds interested in joining our diverse Living Learning Communities, The Global Learning Community and Spanish Living Learning Community are housed within Thomas Hall.

Global Learning Community (GLC)

The Global Learning Community provides an opportunity for domestic and international Blugolds to live together and engage in learning experience related to living in an increasingly global society. Opportunities exist in the GLC for Blugolds to prepare for study abroad and for those returning from study abroad to share their experiences.

Spanish Living Learning Community

The Spanish LLC would be the "home" of 20 to 25 students who commit to "living" the
Spanish language and culture. The LLC, located in Katherine Thomas Hall, would also be the site for events introducing other students and staff on campus and Eau Claire community to various aspects of the Spanish-speaking world.

Living in this LLC will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the language and culture. You also will have the chance to serve as a cultural ambassador to the other resident hall students, campus community and to prospective students.
