What are Living-Learning Communities?

Looking for something a little extra in your living experience? Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are a great example of UWG's commitment to scholarly achievement, creative expression, and service to humanity. LLCs are specialized living environments for small groups of first-time, first-year students centered on specific themes and integrating common academic courses, custom programming, and mentoring. Research indicates that students who participate in LLCs earn higher grades and are more satisfied with the overall college experience than other students. Applying to an LLC is optional and not required to secure housing.

    The music community continues to operate as space for Music students to live. We provide a bus for transport for the marching band students to get them to the stadium, during the football season. One thing that is important about their location is the music practice room and the music computer lab on their floor in Bowdon. Music LLC students will enroll in standard sections of ENGL 1102 and POLS 1101.
