First-Year students living in the residence halls at Eastern Oregon University Fall 2013 will have the opportunity to choose from four new Living-Learning Communities (LLCs).
Being a part of an LLC is a great way to get connected to a core group of other first-year students on campus, both in and out of the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to live and learn together through common courses, make connections across disciplines, and to develop strong connections with each other as well as with faculty and staff; all important components of a successful college experience.
We have FOUR Living-Learning Communities available for Fall of 2013!
Health and Wellness
Do you want to learn about healthy eating? Do you enjoy working out and being well in body & mind? Considering a career in the health professions? This Learning Community is for you!
Students who join this LLC co-enroll in a Chemistry 101 course and a HUM 101 course during fall term, and all live together in North Hall. Students will also take trips/do activities together centered on a health/wellness theme. They may take trips to the farmer’s market, have healthy cooking demos, or take a trip to the local hospital to find out more about what careers in the health professions are like.
Love being active outdoors? Interested in just getting outside and exploring the beauty of Eastern Oregon? This LLC is for you!
Students who join this LLC co-enroll for fall term in a Chemistry 204 course and a HUM 101 course, and all live together in North Hall. Students will also take trips/do activities together that may include a camping or a backpacking trip, local walks/bike rides to explore the community, and connecting outside of class with their faculty/instructor.
