Program Description

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) will provide you with a seamless educational experience. In a LLC, you can experience a fuller, deeper learning by infusing classroom experiences into the residence halls. You will have opportunities to have in-depth conversations with faculty members and foster dialogue with your peers. This will promote greater satisfaction with your overall college experience. In addition, you will engage in learning in the greater community, which will help expand your perceptions and increase your awareness of the global community.

Program Mission Statement

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.

Total number of credits required by program: 6 credits

Program Requirements

Participation in a 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 also 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 but students must apply for entry into a LLC.

Fulfillment of LAC Requirements

Each LLC may satisfy specific LAC requirements.
