The Department of Housing and Residence Life (DHRL) selects undergraduate students to serve as Buc Guides for the various residential living-learning communities (LLCs) we offer at ETSU. Living-learning communities provide students with a chance to live together with individuals who share a common area of interest and to experience programming and course activities that help students build community and connect to faculty, staff, and fellow students. Aside from the Honors College Living-Learning Community, students in LLCs take coursework together as part of the community.
Buc Guides serve as mentors and facilitators in these living-learning programs. Working alongside faculty and staff members, Buc Guides help create programs and activities that connect residents to common interests, and assist in helping students make a successful transition to ETSU.
