The chemistry and physics living learning community (CAPs LLC) aims to improve retention and success rates among intended and declared majors in both disciplines. The interdisciplinary nature of the CAPs LLC is designed to encourage cross disciplinary learning between physicists and chemists by providing a strong community of support within the structure of a much larger University.
All residents of the CAPs LLC will live together in the same residence hall allowing them to interact closely with other students who share similar goals and interests. Residents will also have the chance to participate in many engaging activities, interact with faculty in informal settings outside the classroom and have a resident advisor familiar with their core classes. All activities are designed to further stimulate learning and to build a close knit community.
The LLC strives to provide students with opportunities to interact with faculty and majors in their disciplines in inviting formal and informal environments. The LLC also aims to provide students with additional support to allow for an easier transition from high school into a large university.
All LLC participants will:
·be enrolled into the same section of core classes.
·enroll in a freshman seminar (COAD 1000) specifically designed for LLC residents.
·obtain individualized attention from a faculty mentor.
·have access to a resident advisor who is familiar with their core classes.

Chemistry and physics majors and intended majors enrolled in the CAPs LLC will reside in Garret Hall. LLC residents may choose their own roommate* (pending availability of space). Roommates of choice must also be freshmen but do not need to be a major or intended major in chemistry and physics. They will be eligible to attend most, but not all events organized as part of the LLC. Students also have the option to reside with another resident of the LLC. Students will be required to maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 to remain enrolled in the LLC. If a students' GPA falls below 3.0 they will be placed on probation and given support and one semester to raise their cumulative GPA back above the threshold. LLC residents will be expected to be active participants in the CAPs LLC activities.
Roommate allocation depends on the availability of space. If space is limited any resident of the LLC may be assigned a random roommate by campus living. All LLC residents must sign a separate housing contract with campus living.
Please Note: The roommate of choice option is no longer available!
