THE HONORS PROGRAM LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITY (LLC)
BRINGS TOGETHER THE HONORS ACADEMIC AND RESIDENTIAL EXPERIENCES.

The Honors Program offers incoming students the opportunity to live in suites designated exclusively for the Honors Program in Harley Hall. Students take classes together, live on the Honors floor in the residence hall, and participate in meaningful extracurricular programs. Honors LLC students build strong relationships with their Honors peers as well as with Honors faculty and staff. Participating in the Honors LLC helps students maximize their undergraduate experience and achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals.

One student described the best aspect of the Honors LLC as “being a part of a close-knit community of students where you feel at home and your neighbors become more like family.”
