Living-Learning Communities

What is a Living-Learning Community?

At UW-Superior, a Living-Learning Community is a select group of students who live together on a residence hall floor, share a common interest (in this case Career & Major Exploration), participate in two common courses (Writing 101 and IDS 297: Exploring Majors and Careers), and have access to special resources and activities.This approach integrates in and out of classroom learning and helps lay the foundation for students' success in college.

Why Should I Sign-Up For This?

  • Connects you to campus academically and socially and fosters positive relationships with your instructors, program staff, and peers
  • Unsure of what you want to study or what career path you want? Or know your major but not sure what to do with it after graduation? Either way, you will research career and majors to open your options or confirm your choice!
  • Enjoy small class sizes with the same people you live with creating a floor of resources to assist you with your classes


In order to be admitted into the Exploration Living-Learning Community, students must have:

  • a completed housing contract for 2014-2015
  • placement/ACT scores placing them into Writing 101
  • an interest in exploring majors and careers 
  • new freshmen status

OK, I'm Intrigued, How Do I Sign-Up?

If you haven't signed up for housing yet, on your housing contract:

  • choose the 2nd floor of Curran-McNeill
