Honors Living Learning Community

The First Year and Sophomore Honors Living Learning Community is for students active with the University Honors Program, enrolled in one of several designed Honors courses and living on campus.

The community is a collaboration between Stan State Student Housing and the University Honors Program and offers an engaging, intellectually challenging and fun living-learning environment.

The community theme for 2018-2019 explores themes of social justice and knowing your place in the world.  This theme is integrated throughout the curriculum of designated courses, as well as out-of-class events, discussions and trips.
