Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community

In a Living Learning Community (LLC) at Cedar Crest College, you can enjoy a fuller, deeper learning experience by living in a residence hall with other students who share similar interests.

The mission of Living Learning Communities at Cedar Crest College is to integrate curricular and co-curricular experiences to foster characteristics of women’s leadership, civic engagement, and global connectivity. Living Learning Communities cultivate interactions among students, faculty, and staff by building a community of scholars who share common interests.

Cedar Crest students with the common interest of business ownership will have the chance to live and study together in the “Entrepreneurship: How to Start Your Own Business” LLC, available for the first time in Fall 2011.

Led by Assistant Professor Ibolya Balog and a peer academic leader (who will be chosen from the pool of students accepted into the living learning community), the program will bring learning out of the traditional classroom and into everyday life.

Some important details about the Entrepreneurship LLC:

  • Participation in an LLC is a full-year commitment: Students are required to commit to the fall and spring semesters of the academic year in which they are enrolled in the LLC.
  • Students are required to live in the LLC residence hall during the year and participate in co-curricular activities outside of classroom time.
  • LLCs are open to all students of sophomore-standing or higher.
  • Students must apply for entry into an LLC.
