Living Learning Communities


An arts Living Learning Community

This Living Learning Community is designed for first-year students either enrolled in the School of the Arts or with a strong interest in the arts. 
You will learn, create and collaborate with others who share your creative passion for one or more arts areas. The program includes opportunities to both experience the arts and express yourself in collaboration with other community members. Join us in this innovative, creative venture to maximize your SMU experience! 
Activities may include: 
  • Restoring a stone grotto on campus.
  • Visiting artistic events, regional music performances and shows in the region including the Commonweal Theatre, the Walker Art Museum and the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.
  • Participating in a citywide art tour. 
  • Enjoying creative art outlets including free-form dance, the Black Box theatre, or create a campus or community mural.
