Living-Learning Lounge

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. For honors students who wish to commit themselves passionately to a cause larger than themselves, put themselves in service to others and practice good citizenship. 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.

JPEG ImageWhy Join?

Students join the Honors LLC for many reasons, but all are driven by a love of learning. 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.

It is an honor to be selected as a member of an LLC, and with that honor comes individual responsibility. Students are expected to participate in their LLC in a constructive manner, supporting the environment and success of all its members. Students are expected to participate fully and adhere to the expectations set forth by the LLC. Students who create a negative impact on the learning community may be removed from the community.
