An LLC is a group of 9-12 freshman who are enrolled together in a class and live together on the same residence hall. The students share the same academic advisor, peer advisor, and resident advisor. Each Community is focused around a theme, which is explored through classwork, special events, and programs (both on the hall and beyond). The goal of an LLC is to foster strong relationships between new freshmen, between freshmen and faculty, and between freshmen and upperclassman RAs and Peer Mentors. Because students will be enrolled together in a credit-bearing course, the Community is also a place where the academic advisor and peer mentor can work on developing students' learning skills such as time management, reading, and note-taking. All incoming HSC freshmen are invited to apply to an LLC.
