Living and Learning Community

The Psychology Department Living and Learning Community (LLC), located in Adams Hall, gives freshmen the opportunity to become part of a unique experience with fellow psychology majors. LLCs offer programs that reflect the interests of the community members, host study sessions and provide academic and social support to you through an on-site Resident Peer Mentor and Resident Advisors.

By being part of an LLC, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a more personal and less formal way of learning. You’ll live among students who share the same interests and would build strong relationships with your peers.
