"Learning at Curry extends beyond the classroom and is embedded in all that we do."

The First-Year Living Learning Communities (LLC) Program at Curry College allows you to collaborate with faculty and other first-year students both in and out of the classroom as you investigate a common theme and complete your required courses. You will be asked to challenge yourself as you engage in discussions, lectures, activities, and community events throughout the year. 

The Living Learning Community experience is one that is holistic and integrates participants' classroom and residential experiences. Students in First-Year Living Learning Communities (LLC) take two or more courses together around a theme during both fall and spring semesters, and are engaged both in and out of the classroom with other students, faculty, and residential staff. 

For the 2018-2019 academic year there are four distinct LLCs available. Each will be housed in North Campus Residence Hall (NCRH). North Campus Residence Hall (NCRH) allows students and faculty access to group collaboration and study spaces complete with technology, and are designed to support interaction and collaboration both in and outside of the classroom. 

New for the 2018-2019 year, participants in each of the LLCs will have a Living Learning Community Mentor present and available to support them throughout their experience. LLC Mentors are sophomore year students that have previously participated in the LLC during their first year at Curry College, and have already experienced the LLC classroom learning and activities. Participants will also have a Resident Assistant (RA) connected to the LLC and living within the hall. These RAs are also intentionally selected (having had previous experience in the LLC or content area) to work with each program. Resident Assistants and other Residence Life & Housing staff provide participants with mentorship and support, and targeted programming opportunities based on each LLC theme.

For information or questions regarding living in the residence halls, please contact Dan Cline, Assistant Director of Residence Life, at

Students who are interested and apply to these LLCs are assigned housing in North Campus Residence Hall (NCRH). Due to limited space within NCRH, students participating in these LLCs must live with another LLC member from their own program or another LLC program housed within North Campus Residence Hall (NCRH).

Students who have deposited and are interested in one of the LLCs should complete the application and/or specific materials associated with the individual program.
