Living Learning Programs at CSUMB are communities where students of similar interests and/or academic studies live together and participate in intentional learning about their chosen program as a collective. Within a community, students are actively engaged in programs like field trips, dialogue groups, faculty dinners, and increased exposure to opportunities on and off campus.
What are the benefits of living in a living-learning program?

- Developing relationships with peers who have similar interests and faculty members in your field of study.
- Participating in community programs geared specifically towards your interests/goals and connect to what you learn in class.

I would highly recommend that you join a living learning program. Almost everyone who lives on your floor you will become friends with. It helps you all become friends when you all have common interests. It's just an overall great experience and I highly recommend it.
