The Offices of Academic Affairs and Campus Life and Student Affairs  offer unique opportunities for  incoming first-years.  The Living Learning Communities (LLC) allows first-year residents to reside with classmates from their college seminar,or shared class and connect with faculty, staff, and student mentors within their residence hall. It provides ways to engage about class topics, ease into community living with opportunities for study groups, extra-curricular activities, while providing additional activities to engage about class topics in-depth with faculty , staff, and fellow classmates in and out of the classroom. Other events center on guest speakers and trips for these communities.

Drew’s Living Learning Communities foster liberal arts education, deepen  student-faculty relationships, and empower students to grow and develop. Research  indicates LLC participants may increase their grade point average, have a greater sense of satisfaction and stronger relationships with faculty members. Further, there is a direct correlation among students who persist and succeed is directly related to the culture of learning established across the campus. LLCs foster this environment, add to intellectual curiosity, and increase the bonds between students and faculty.
