What is a Living Learning Community?
living learning programs at WSU are designed to
offer you living arrangements with other students
who have similar goals and to give you the chance
to extend your studies beyond the classroom and
into your daily experience. Living
Learning programs provide a bridge between the
classroom and outside-of-class life.

Community is to provide a quality living
environment that will allow students to grow
and foster in their academic and personal lives.

establishing a living environment that would
allow students of higher academic success to

- In the Residential Learning Community, first-year
students take three common classes together
(pending outcomes of placement tests) in a small
group of no more than 25 (ENG101, HST 101, and
UVC101) and live on the same floor.
- One of your classes, UVC101 will be co-instructed
by an academic advisor from University College
and a staff member in Residence Life.
- UVC 101 is a first-year student success course
that teaches adjustment to college life, academic
success strategies, personal development, and
career development. In the WSU Living Learning
Communities, it also serves as the course that
links the students and their experiences inside
the classroom together.
