The purpose of the Living Learning Community is to cultivate the minds of young scholars who aspire to become a part of the informatics, Computing, and Engineering Profession. Our goal first and foremost is to build the collaboration amongst peers. As soon as they get here on day one. We then focus on building that community aspects allowed them to feel that home away from home within our community. We also develop them as leaders within the classroom, while also getting the necessary skills to be successful in the future. We want them to be ready Career-wise, we want them to be ready personally, we want them to be ready as students like professional development, person development, and being able to know that tech is an area that they really want to focus on and meet him with employers early on, helped them with their elevator pitch, health on communication skills, helped them a research study abroad. All those areas are high impact practices to help students be successful. The best part of the Luddy LLC is the sense of building community. You build basically your family since day one, starting orientation even before you just start with classes. And that's one of the biggest things that I was worried about, especially coming into college from another state, is that I don't know if I was going to make friends as fast as I did when I was in the muddy LLC. So I think it's one of those things. Just make sure you're building community families and stay one. Also that we have alignment is so like the Innovation Lab. And it's really convenient because going there, study Hangout, user 3D printers and laser engraver, soldering irons and power tools and really be creative. Space.

My floor was very close. It gives you such a great group to lean on when you are struggling, and we had a great time bonding outside of homework.
