WFU Living Learning Communities

At Wake Forest, we believe learning takes place beyond the four walls of a classroom and are eager to provide opportunities to enhance your intellectual, cultural, and social development. One of the many ways our faculty members support this idea is through unique learning communities called Living Learning Communities (LLC).

Living Learning Communities give you the opportunity to engage with your classes in new and exciting ways. Students in Living Learning Communities build connections with their classmates while fulfilling degree requirements (such as First Year Seminars, Writing Seminars, or Divisional Courses).

In a Living Learning Community you live in the same residence hall as your classmates and engage in class and residential events designed to deepen your learning and foster community.  You also connect with your course instructor in a manner that is uniquely Wake Forest. While your Living Learning Community course instructor does not live in the residence hall with you, he/she will serve as a teacher, mentor, and event facilitator for you and your classmates. Often, but not always, Living Learning Community course instructors also serve as your adviser, providing additional aid in the advising and registration process.
