Living and Learning Community

Get a jump on your college experience from your first day on campus by joining one of these unique experiences!

You have the opportunity to become a member of one of our Living and Learning Communities (LLC) and take the knowledge you are learning in the classroom and connect it with experiences outside the classroom. This will make you better prepared to tackle your college experience than other students!

Architecture, Living and Learning Community – Baccalaureate architecture students can study, live, work, and engage with their faculty, all in their own residence hall (Peet Hall). The ALLC provides access to architecture work labs, study space, and a gallery.

Creative House, Living and Learning Community– Designed specifically for students in the digital media & animation or graphic & media design programs, this Living Learning Community (LLC) features studio workspaces for its residents. Students live and learn with like-minded colleagues in a space made for productive and creative collaboration. With large screen monitors, a production studio, a space to screen work, and other extras, students who live in the Creative House LLC are prepared to hit the ground running on their creative projects.

Cultural Life, Living and Learning Community – The Cultural Life community is open to incoming first-year students at Alfred State and will provide math and writing labs to residents to assist with supplemental instruction. Residents will participate in programs centered around diversity, inclusion, and civic engagement. This community has Academic Peer Mentors and Community Support Mentors to assist students in their transition to college. Additionally, residents in this community will have programming and leader ship development opportunities provided to them directly from the Cultural Life Center team. These programs are geared around the concept of cultural humility and will focus on building culturally humble/ informed student leaders.

Nursing, Living Learning Community – First-year nursing students have the opportunity to become part of a community within Burdick Hall dedicated to helping new students transition into the nursing curriculum. In addition to participating in a cohort seminar led by nursing faculty within their residence hall, the NLLC provides an atmosphere with enhanced opportunities to learn from and connect with their faculty.

Summer Prep Academy, Living and Learning Community – Students accepted into the EOP program will attend Summer Prep Academy four weeks throughout July and August. These first-year students will have the option of remaining in their summer housing building without the stress of relocating to another residence hall room for the fall semester. The SPA Living Learning Community will allow SPA students to continue to live with their EOP cohort and maintain regular contact with their summer SPA mentors throughout the academic year.
