About the Living Learning Community

You can take a self-guided, virtual tour of the Nevada LLC using the link below. For residents who are unable to use this interactive tour, we've created a video tour highlighting the Nevada Living Learning Community's main features.

The Liberal Arts Living Learning Community (LLC) is a special residential experience for first-year students interested in the Liberal Arts and one of the many majors in the College of Liberal Arts. Our LLC, located in the Nevada Living and Learning Community building, is a high impact experience that emphasizes essential liberal arts skills (innovative thinking, problem solving, critical analysis and communication) and hands-on experience necessary to achieve success at the University of Nevada, Reno and beyond. Residents also gain a greater sense of community and connection to their major, to the College of Liberal Arts, and to the University.

Students in the program share academic, social and cultural activities, live on the same floor, and attend one course per semester together.

The special courses offered through the Liberal Arts LLC fulfill important core requirements, facilitating the march toward graduation in four years.

In addition to fun social activities and special events connected to the LLC courses, students will meet professors, student leaders in the College, members of our CLA Community Advisory Board and the Dean.

There will be special advising sessions, workshops on getting an internship and a special CLA leadership program.
