What are Living Learning Communities?

Why search for a study group, when you can live with your study group?  LLCs bring together students with similar identities, values or needs. We also have professors and staff who support your experience within the residence halls. A successful first year of college looks different for every student, so we offer programs to appeal to a diverse set of interests and structure them so students are given opportunities to adjust to UAF academically as well as socially.

 

What are the benefits of Living Learning Communities?

Students develop a strong friendship with classmates while gaining a deeper connection to the university with the support of faculty and staff. Participate in fun and educational in-house activities and events with Resident Assistants who are a live-in resource with the same field of study or interest.

 

Who is eligible to participate in Living Learning Communities?

There are both first year and continuing education living learning communities. Depending upon your field of study or personal interest, there are options to select a variety of areas. There are limited spaces available though, and applicants will be accepted on a first come first serve basis, so make sure to reserve your spot early!

 

Brimah Vanjo Jr.: Student Success Coordinator

It is the first year for students to reside in living and learning communities here at UAF.  And things are off to a fantastic start.  Through the collaborative efforts of the campus partners and the residential life staff, students are now benefiting from an environment that helps them to unlock their full potential as individuals and intellectuals. 

Brimah's role as the student success coordinator is to organize the matters that pertain to the living and learning communities here at the university.  The campus partners and Brimah meet regularly throughout the academic year to create programs and opportunities to provide students with the best education experience possible.
