Living & Learning Communities

The Office of Residential Living and Learning has many opportunities for our students to find a community that fits their interests and needs. Each residence hall offers activities and events that engage the students in their living community as well as the University community. 

Freshman Communities

Pride Rock and Whitley Hall are designated for traditional age freshmen. Our staff are specifically trained to aid in the development of freshman students and strive to provide a community that is conducive to academics and social activity. 

Within the freshmen communities, we also have living learning communities that are available through application.

Sophomore Year Experience

The sophomore experience is a living and learning community through Residential Living and Learning where we take critical thinking to the next level.  This is an opportunity for students to use the skills learned during their freshman year to implement change that will enhance their local and global community.  Students will live together while building a team that will research a global topic (i.e. health care, education, the environment, etc.), do fundraising, and eventually travel out of the country during the summer.

Applications are available in March.
