Second Year students are invited to embrace our “Educate for Service” motto and live in a Brinser Suite (ILU) with 3 friends who are also committed to serving the community. Throughout the year, students have the opportunity to work with local agencies to get a better understanding of community needs and how they can be met. Participants will complete a minimum of 32 hours of service throughout the academic year (about 1 hour per week). Additional requirements will include monthly meetings with a Learning Mentor and written reflections.
Additional Living Learning Communities are also available for students of any level.
