Living Learning Programs

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.

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.
