What are the benefits of participating in a Living-Learning Community?
Sharing something in common with those around you.
Students in the LLCs come into the community with something in common, whether it is a major or interests. This helps residents build study groups and make friends.
Being connected to resources to help you in college.
As a resident in the LLCs, you will have added face-to-face interactions with faculty, staff, and advisors who can give you support in classes or be there when you don't know where to turn.
Your academic success is complemented with social and fun activities to help make ETSU home.
By participating in LLCs, residents have the opportunity to study together with fellow residents and take advantage of academic resources, and interact outside the classroom in ways that help you find your place at the University.
