Living and Learning Communities

There’s something new in on-campus living at AUM. Living and Learning Communities (LLCs) are an exciting addition to the residential experience. Designed to encourage personal enrichment and the achievement of shared educational goals, they provide an environment where living and learning go hand in hand. LLCs give you the opportunity to pursue your interests and share your talents with fellow residents. What better way to meet new friends?

An advisor facilitates unique programming that fits with each LLC. You can expect academic and peer support from the advisor, Residence Life Staff and your fellow residents. Read more to find out which Living and Learning Community is right for you.

Learning Comes First (LCF) Living and Learning Community

Learning Comes First is a specially designed residential community that provides a built-in academic and social network for new AUM freshmen. Participants will enjoy these awesome benefits:

  • Making New Friends Fast: All LCF students will live on the same floor in North Commons.
  • Being Part of a Learning Community: LCF students take the majority of their classes together, giving you a close, convenient study group.
  • Tutoring at No Additional Cost: Trained tutors are on site to help when you need assistance with a course.
  • Exclusive Overnight Summer Orientation: Freshmen who have been accepted to the LCF program are invited to a special orientation in North Commons. They meet potential roommates and get a preview of LCF activities before attending a standard summer orientation session the next morning.
