Living Learning Community Open House
In the effort to create a vibrant campus and transformational residential life experience at the College, the first Living Learning Community was piloted this year for first-year students in La Salle Hall. On Saturday, students in the program hosted an open house to demonstrate how this collaboration between academics and student life helped them connect and grow during their first year at college. The program of focused study and activities in and out of the residence hall combined the themes of wellness, sustainability and spirituality.
Next year, four separate new Living Learning Communities will be designed around a course that fulfills the first-year Lasallian Core Tradition course requirement. LLCs next fall will focus on the arts, wellness, interfaith dialogue, and sports in a global context. Students will live in the Saint Edward’s Living Learning Center, with learning and social activities directed by residence life staff and faculty.
