Living Learning Communities give
students a unique, inclusive residential learning experience.
Students enjoy all the usual advantages of living on campus in a
residence hall, with the added benefit of living among a group that
shares similar goals and interests.
By being actively involved in a Living Learning Community, you
get an opportunity to build partnerships with other students,
faculty, and staff at educational and interactive programs that are
organized specifically for your community. You also get an
opportunity to have class with other students who have the same
interests as you within the community.
One of the best ways to develop strong friendships and succeed
in college is to join a Living Learning Community.
Open to all students regardless of previous community
involvement, each Living Learning Community will share a commitment
to helping others within Saint Leo University and surrounding
communities. Students in Living Learning Communities will develop
leadership skills and become more involved on campus because of
their experiences within their community.
