LLCs vary in organization, goals, and curriculums, but they share the following characteristics:
Being a part of an LLC will provide students with a mutual support network, offer evening events on interesting topics of specific interest to an academic discipline, promote group dinner meetings, and have programs designed to increase retention and overall academic performance. Some other benefits for the students are:
The Media and Design Living Learning community started in Fall 2012 is tailored for design students. Students work on group projects, and attend programs, conferences and seminars that focus on giving Media and Design LLC students exclusive experiences that help them relate their classwork to real world situations within the field. The Media and Design LLC is for students who are sophomores, juniors or seniors who are enrolled in the design program. It is housed in Bullock Hall on the Worcester campus and has accommodations for both male and female students.
SERVES (Students Engaging in Relevant Visionary Efforts in Service) is Becker’s second Living Learning Community designed specifically for first year students. Students living in this community all share a common goal, a passion to help others and make a difference. This is accomplished by working both in groups and individually on service projects through the year. The SERVES community is housed on the Leicester campus in a wing of Knight Hall and has accommodations for up to 20 male and female students.
