Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Wellness Living Learning Community (WLLC)?
The WLLC is an exciting residential learning opportunity open to ALL incoming freshmen. We have designed this learning community for students who have an interest in health and wellness and in helping to improve the health of others. Students who are selected to live in the WLLC will reside together in Fletcher Residence Hall and receive personal wellness coaching and health classes. In addition, students will also have an opportunity to go out into the community and share what they have learned with underserved youth in Eastern North Carolina.

One of the many benefits to participating in the WLLC is that you will have a unique opportunity to connect with students, faculty and staff who all have an interest in health and wellness. In addition, you will get academic credit for the classes you will take as part of this community.
Who can participate in the WLLC?
All incoming freshmen are welcome to apply. You do not need to be in a health-related major.
