All incoming first-year students in our LLC's will be paired with other first-year students as roommates. Some Living-Learning Communities like the Live Well, Multicultural and Unity LLC's are also home to second-year students who provide support and mentorship to incoming first-year residents, though those students will not be paired with first-year roommates.
In addition to fellow students, our residence halls are home to resident assistants, residence hall directors and faculty affiliates.
Resident assistants are student leaders charged with developing a sense of community among residents and assisting students with their personal, interpersonal and academic development.
Residence hall directors are full-time, live-in professionals who supervise the community, train resident assistants, coordinate programming and respond to the needs of the student population through crisis management and as student conduct officers.
Faculty affiliates provide academic mentorship to the Living Learning Community and enhance the theme of the LLC. Faculty affiliates are trained to facilitate learning in the residential space in conjunction with residential life staff.
