Living-Learning Communities

What is a Living-Learning Community (LLC)?

At UW-Superior, a Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a select group of students who live together in a residence hall, share a common interest (in this case Career & Major Exploration), participate in two common courses 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?

As a member of the Living-Learning Community, you'll have the chance to really get to know your instructors and develop strong friendships with your fellow students. LLC members will have access to reserved space in one of two required General Education Writing courses (Writing 101 or 102) as well as a 1 credit course designed to help with career and major exploration.
