Living Learning Communities
What are Living Learning Communities
Valdosta State University provides residential experiences commonly referred to as Living Learning Communities (LLC). Residents in our Living Learning Communities (LLCs) benefit from additional resources, support, and enhanced activities centered around a specific focus in order to elevate their residential experience. At the center of all of our LLC’s is the belief that learning is an active and dynamic process that occurs both inside and outside the classroom and is a process in which students use several perspectives to learn. On-campus living spaces provide an ideal learning environment as most students spend more collective hours in their living environment than any other location on campus, including the classroom. The Living-Learning Communities available for first-year students are Honors, Biology, Communication Arts, American Sign Language Immersion, ROTC, and Greek Life (for future sorority women going through recruitment their first-year).
Honors Freshman & Upperclassmen Community
Honors college at VSU includes an exclusive residential and social community with dedicated facilities, smaller classes, scholarship opportunities, and rigorous interactions with faculty mentors. Located in Reade Hall.
American Sign Language Living Community
This community provides an opportunity for all students who are deaf, hearing, and hard-of-hearing to live together in a community where they can use and practice American Sign Language in a daily living. Located in Hopper Hall. If this is something you'd be interested in, apply here.
Greek Life Freshman Community
This community aims to attract reliable, sisterly, responsible, and dedicated women to not only Greek Life, but also Valdosta State, and to assist in retaining those women through all four years of their undergraduate experience. Located in Georgia Hall.
Sophomore Year Navigation Community
SYNC centers around building upon a successful first-year at VSU or correcting what made for a less than successful first-year. The Academic Support Center, Career Opportunities and Housing & Residence Life have put together this community to house students who are wanting to make the most of their 2nd year in college. Located in Georgia Hall.
Biology Residential Living Community
This community provides an opportunity for all biology students who are interested in Pre-Denistry, Pre-Medicine, Pre-Veterinarian, General Biology and more to live together in a community where they can add on to their in-class learning with out of classes experience. Located in Georgia Hall. If this is something you'd be interested in, apply here.
Air Force (ROTC) Freshman Community
This community prepares ROTC cadets for their life in college and beyond. Focusing on topics likely healthy living and global citizenship, this community will prepare our Air Force cadets for life outside of Valdosta, outside of Georgia and even outside of the country. Located in Patterson Hall.
Communication Arts Community
This community provides a schedule of workshops throughout the year to address common issues for first-year Communication Arts students. Timeline of events for the students living here has been set up which includes, but is not limited to: off-site field trips, service projects, meals with faculty and an end of the year celebration.
