What is a LC or LLC?
A Learning Community (LC) is open to commuter and residential students. A Living-Learning Community (LLC) is designed for residential students and includes a shared living experience within an assigned residence hall. Students will enroll in a least two common courses together. Both LCs and LLCs provide students with a unique opportunity to interact with faculty outside the classroom, and participate in a number of out-of-classroom experiences such as field trips, service-learning projects and workshops with students sharing similar interests.
Whether you are interested in exploring a specific topic, such as leadership, or want to be connected with students in the same major, joining a LC/LLC provides you with a great opportunity to make lasting friendships and to engage with faculty during your first and second year at NSU.
Norfolk State University offers more than 20 Learning Communities (LCs) and Living-Learning Communities (LLCs). Which is the best fit for you?
