Living-Learning Communities at DSU

Description: 

A unique opportunity to help make the transition from high school to college life a lot easier!

Body: 
What Can a Living-Learning Community Offer Me? A Living-Learning Community allows you the option to live as a community of learners in a specific residence hall or clustered portion of the hall. You'll  live with other students who are exploring similar majors, career choices and interests. The Learning Community’s coordinator comes to the residence halls to meet you, and in some cases upper class peer mentors live alongside you in the residence halls to help you have a great start to a college career.  There are eight residential Living-Learning Communities with specific themes from which you can choose to participate. How Do I Apply? The application process for the 2014-15 academic year has ended.
