Fall 2019 Living Learning Communities

Students in a Living Learning Community (LLC) live in a residence hall with students in their Freshman Seminar class. Students will participate in class-related activities, in-depth community building and day trips with classmates from their residence hall. 

Students in the Global Engagement LLC explore a variety of cultural and political topics in a global context through academic work and social engagement. Our range of seminars and extracurricular activities across the city offer students many opportunities to study and tackle diverse social issues first-hand. Whether it be by studying foreign film, sampling global cuisine, or taking in an art exhibit in downtown Austin, students in this LLC will learn how a global perspective can help us tackle problems at the local level and vice-versa. 

In the Leadership LLC, you'll be challenged to gain a greater understanding of what makes someone an inspirational leader. Whether you envision yourself leading a country, a brand, a classroom, a research team or a band, your experiences in this LLC will empower you to further develop your leadership qualities. You will participate in workshops led by faculty and staff from across campus, learn from high-profile leaders in various fields, and engage in service projects in your community.

Become part of a community of students who care deeply about the world, have a desire to grow and meet their full potential, and are excited to tackle tough issues affecting us all. Reflective thinking, courageous dialogue and affirming finger-snapping included! 

Honors students live together so that the thought-provoking and challenging conversations that occur in the classroom can move into the residence hall. All first-year Honor students live in Dujarié Hall, where they build lifelong relationships with their classmates as well as engage closely with their faculty mentors through co-curricular events held on and off campus.

The Natural Sciences LLC (also known as the CASAR Project: Community for Achievement in Science, Academics and Research) was initially established by a grant from the National Science Foundation so that science majors at St. Edward’s University can begin establishing their credentials as experienced scientists. Participating students arrive on campus before school begins and join the Freshmen Accelerated Research Methods (FARM) Workshop where they learn research tools and methodologies in several scientific disciplines so they are prepared to join research projects and develop their credentials as a scientist.
