Connect through Learning Communities

Students who build relationships within smaller communities on a large campus are more likely to connect with networks of support, enhancing their chances of success. UALR offers Learning Communities that make getting connected easy and the transition to college life fun.

What are they?

In a nutshell, living learning communities (LLCs) connect classroom learning with a residential experience. Students who choose to join an LLC are assigned to a floor with other students who share their academic goals and interests. These communities encourage partnerships between faculty and students, provide programs and activities specifically designed for each community, and create a support system that builds a strong foundation for student success.

Why join an LLC?

Studies show that students in LLCs develop friendships, attend programs, and become more engaged in the campus environment than non-LLC members. This increased participation and network of support leads to higher grades and more satisfaction with the general college experience. So, read on to see which LLC might be right for you.
