Honors Living Learning Community

Honors students are invited to live and learn with motivated and creative peers in the Honors Living-Learning Community in Shocker Hall. Through living and learning together, students in the Honors LLC prepare to be successful in Honors, in academic departments, on campus and in the Wichita community.

The ideal student for the Honors LLC is one who enjoys scholarship, craves challenges, appreciates a diverse perspective on current issues, and wants to be connected with likeminded students and dedicated faculty from the minute they step foot on campus until long after they step off the commencement stage. To sign up for the Honors LLC, go to the Housing and Residence Life website.
