Living and Learning Communities, or LLCs, are theme-based learning groups of about 20 students.
Students share common interests, live on the same residence-hall floor, take classes together, and engage in other activities that focus on a theme like career exploration or social justice.
These worthwhile, intriguing, and intellectually stimulating communities offer a unique opportunity to explore an important topic, and are a great way to connect with other students and professors.
LLCs have themes to match a range of student interests, including:
Academic and Career Exploration (ACE): Uncertain about your major or career path? This is the LLC for you.
Cabrini Cruisers: Commuting, first-year students can explore their talents and develop leadership skills
Film and Media Studies: Culture Through the Lens of Art: Think critically about various forms of mass culture
Honors: An LLC for Cabrini’s Honors students
Realizing Dreams: How do identity, race, class, gender, and other factors affect people's ability to achieve their goals?
Voices of Justice: Promoting human rights and dignity through community involvement
For more information about LLCs, contact Richie Gebauer, Director of the First-Year Experience, at 610-902-8592 or LLC@cabrini.edu.
