A Texas State Living-Learning Community is a group of students living together based on a common interest, while taking one or more classes together and participating in out of class experiences led by successful upper class students. Residents have access to many special resources, programs, and activities, such as seminars, site visits, and reserved space in academic courses.
If you have already taken any of the classes we offer for co-enrollment, please let us know. For some communities this will not be a problem because there are more classes from which to choose. If you do not need to take a co-enrolled course, participating in an LLC may not be as beneficial for you.
Students in LLCs live with other students who are also in the same LLC. Part of college is about getting to know new people from different backgrounds. Being roommates with someone who is also in the LLC is one of the benefits of the program and it enriches the community.
Yes. A faculty member resides in a separate apartment within Residential College (Beretta and Brogdon halls) and a faculty member resides in a separate apartment within the Laurel Honors House.
The LLC program strives to teach new students to interact with professors on both a formal and informal level. During their stay in the residence hall, the faculty member is able to connect with the students on a one-to-one basis through various means such as “office hours” in the hall, holding informal academic discussions, socializing, facilitating formal programs, and mentoring.
Please let us know as soon as possible in order that we may decide how best to house you. If you decided not to participate in your LLC before your designated room selection round, we will remove you from our list and place you back into the normal room selection process. If you change your mind after you have already been assigned to a room within the LLC, we may place you into a space based on availability.
