Living Learning Community

LLC Meeting

 

Location

The 3rd & 4th Floors of Yocum Hall are dedicated to just the Engineering LLC

Purpose

As a member of this community you will have the unique opportunity to engage with peers and faculty members from the College of Engineering to help enhance your academic performance during your first year at the University of Arkansas. Students in the Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) are likely to get together often for studying, reviewing, and discussing course work in the residence hall. The Engineering LLC offers initiatives such as study sessions, informal interaction with faculty and staff, guest speakers on various engineering related topics, and much more.
