Live where you learn. Learn where you live.

A Community is a living-learning environment where students with similar interests, scholarships, or majors live on a dedicated floor in a residence hall. Students participate in programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs. Communities help to form strong friendships, build campus connections, and promote academic success. All students are encouraged to apply.

My Community has given me great friends who push me to be my best and pursue my dreams. I’m surrounded by people with similar interests and dreams. We’re in the same classes, study together frequently, and help each other with homework.
