Living Learning Communities

A Living Learning Community or LLC is a community of students living within a residential floor or residence hall who are connected through an academic major or field of studyThe LLC is directed by a faculty or staff member who organizes educational and social activities for LLC members to bolster student engagement and academic success.  

These live-in communities foster greater interaction among students allowing for them to make friends easier and become more involved in social and learning activities. Research has shown that LLCs have proven beneficial to students who participate by enhancing their overall well-being and improving academic performance through supportive mentoring by staff, resulting in higher retention, graduation rates and GPAs.  

Eligibility to participate in an LLC and requirements are specific to the type of LLC students wish to live in. Carroll currently offers LLC programs that include the Honors Program and Nursing.

2023-2024 academic year applications to be considered for an LLC are due by:

  • April 1, 2023 for first-year students

After these dates applications will be considered based on availability.
