Looking for something a little extra in your living experience? Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are a great example of UWG's commitment to scholarly achievement, creative expression, and service to humanity. LLCs are specialized living environments for small groups of first-time, first-year students centered on specific themes and integrating common academic courses, custom programming, and mentoring. Research indicates that students who participate in LLCs earn higher grades and are more satisfied with the overall college experience than other students. Applying to an LLC is optional and not required to secure housing.

“I believe the easiest way to express what's inside yourself is through music. When
I’m writing, I ask myself what I want the world to see. How much of my soul am I willing
to put on a piece of paper?”
