As learning takes place outside the classroom, Residence Life offers undergraduate students the opportunity to live in one of our on-campus living-learning communities (LLCs). These are specific communities within our residence halls for students who share common academic goals or interests.
Students in these communities live in a residence hall together and participate as a group in various activities revolving around a central theme. In addition to community building opportunities, residents in LLCs also have the opportunity to participate in out-of-the-classroom learning activities such as interactions with faculty, service projects, field trips, speakers and other theme-based social events.
Truman’s Living Learning Communities are located in Missouri Hall. These locations are ideal for learning communities because of the close proximity in which the students live to each other, their Student Advisors and the Hall Director.
Residence Life is partnering with Truman’s Education Department to provide a unique learning opportunity for residents. Residents of the Future Teachers Living Learning Community have the opportunity to participate in a variety of events and out-of-class learning experiences. This community encourages the development of student-professor partnerships with the education faculty and growth within the field of education.
The Romance Languages Community consists of first-year and upper-division students who have a strong interest in Romance Language courses offered at Truman. Residents in this LLC have the opportunity to form close connections with Romance Language faculty and practice their language skills at home.
