The Living Learning Community builds a strong foundation for university life and is the start of life-long friendships.   University Honors students live in Smith Hall on West Campus.  These are thriving communities, throbbing with social events, leadership and service opportunities, special workshops, and academic support.  There really is no other time, such as this one--living along our beautiful lake, with your peers from all disciplines, who will support and challenge you.

Eligibility: The University Honors Program Living Learning Community (LLC) is open to students in the University Honors Program. First-year Honors students who have not elected to reside in the LLC of their academic program or in an Academic LLC are strongly encouraged to live in the Honors LLC. All second-year Honors students (except Engineering) are strongly encouraged to continue living in the Honors LLC for their sophomore year to continue the many benefits of this Living Learning Community.

Faculty Friends Program

The Faculty Friends program creates low-stress, informal faculty/student interaction opportunities.  Faculty are invited to "hang out" with students and have a meal in the Lent or Trueblood dining halls. Invitations are sent to the Faculty from students residing in the residence halls.

First, students will submit a request via an MS Form. Once the student has received the confirmation email, they will come to pick up meal tickets. For more information, email
