Education Living-Learning Community

Living-Learning Community


The College of Education Living-Learning Community (LLC) gives first-year education students a unique residential learning experience that connects College of Education faculty and staff members and classroom learning with residence life to ease the transition into the ECU community and contribute to their success within the College of Education and beyond. Students will enjoy the typical first year experience of dorm life with the added benefit of living with other students who are also going into the education field. In addition to in-hall discussions and guest speakers, students in the LLC will have the opportunity to engage in a number of activities outside the University environment, attending cultural events, teambuilding ropes course, and social activities in and around the ECU community. These activities help students become comfortable with the residential and academic aspects of University life in a short period of time.
