Read on to learn more about what it's like

By SLU Staff Writers

At SLU, you can make the most out of your first year of college by choosing to live in one of nine Learning Communities, where you and your floormates are all studying the same thing or have a similar interest.

Becca, A SLU student from Chicago, Illinois, says, "There's the cool piece of being outside the classroom together, living in community with each other. But beyond that, you actually go to class with these people."

Growing Together

Not only do students in a Learning Community live together in a residence hall and take several courses together, they also participate in service projects, attend events and plan other activities together. Often, you'll meet your closest college friends through your Learning Community.  

For Johnathan from Los Angeles, the Learning Community expereince offered a chance to build deep, lasting relationships. "These are the same people you'll be taking classes with for the next four years, " he says. "They actually do become your best friends."
