  • Higher academic success rates
  • Higher college graduation rates
  • An easier time connecting with their peers.

 LLC Participants also enjoy considerable benefits such as the following:

  • Frequent interaction with faculty and staff outside the classroom
  • More positive perception of the residential experience
  • Greater connection to the university at large
