Living Learning Communities

Learn where you Live.  Love where you Learn.

This fall the Honors Program is partnering with University Housing to offer three Living Learning Communities (LLCs) open only to first-year students in the Honors Program.  The communities will be housed in Ascension Hall (pictured below) – a new residence hall in the heart of campus dedicated exclusively to Honors Program students.

Students participating in one of the LLCs will:

  • live together in Ascension Hall
  • enroll in special sections of Honors SE 101H taught right where you live
  • be encouraged to enroll in at least one more class together
  • have the opportunity to join the honors mentoring program, and
  • participate in activities around a theme over the course of the first-year.

Even if you do not join one of the LLCs, ALL Honors Program students are encouraged to live in Ascension Hall and enjoy Honors-specific programming like

  • Trivia Night
  • Play Attendance
  • Painting Night
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Special Advising Sessions.

 

Meet the LLCs: 

LEADERSHIP AND CITIZENSHIP

If you are looking to explore your own leadership style, get involved with the university community, and want to be surrounded by other students who share your passions, then the Leadership and Citizenship LLC is for you.  This community will encourage you to explore and learn about yourself and what drives you to be a leader while having fun and working as a team. 

Students in this LLC will be automatically enrolled in the same section of SE 101H and are highly encouraged to enroll in COMM 211H in fall 2022. 

APPRECIATION OF THE ARTS

Enjoy a unique residential experience for artists, performers, and anyone who appreciates the fine arts!  First-year activities in the community will include attending theatre and musical productions as a group, taking a tour of an exhibition at the contemporary art gallery, and participating in evening activities in the residence hall like painting night. 

Students in this LLC will be automatically enrolled in the same section of SE 101H and are highly encouraged to enroll in HONR 191 – Interdisciplinary Art in fall 2022. 

HEALTH SCIENCES

Are you contemplating a career in nursing, medicine, athletic training, health and physical education, communication sciences disorders, social work, or any other health science?  This community will let you find honors students with similar goals and interests.  Special community events over the year will include guest lectures on science topics of the day, the chance to talk to juniors and seniors in the health sciences about their strategies for success, and fun events like game night to blow off steam.

Students in this LLC will be automatically enrolled in the same section of SE 101H and are highly encouraged to enroll in GBIO 151H in fall 2022. 

Benefits of Joining an LLC:

Participation in a learning community offers a number of benefits, all of which help promote your academic and social success at Southeastern.  As with anything, you’ll get out of it what you put into it, but the potential benefits of living in a learning community include:

  • earning a higher GPA,
  • making friends fast,
  • diving into an area that interests you,
  • taking a class right where you live,
  • having greater satisfaction with your college experience, and
  • being more likely to persist to graduation. 

Will I attend every LLC event?

LLC Members must attend five (5) events in the fall semester and three (3) in the spring.  Many students attend way more than the minimum, but we know Honors students are a busy lot.  Get to what you can. 

How Do I Apply?

Applications for the 2022-23 Honors Living Learning Communities will open on February 1, 2022.  A link to the application portal will be posted on this page at that time.
