Living and Learning Opportunities at Shippensburg


A Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a group of students who live together on the same floor and share common academic or social interests. They may share classes, fun activities, social events, opportunities to hear interesting speakers and a variety of campus resources. These LLCs help students build new relationships with other students as well as with faculty and staff and are highly recommended by several offices and academic departments. 

All of this can help students ease the transition to college, reinforce academic goals, build an appreciation for lifelong learning and create lasting friendships.
