Politics, Law and Society Living Learning Community

The Politics, Law and Society Living Learning Community (PLSLLC) is designed for first-year, direct-from-high school and transfer students (age 20 or younger)  interested in politics, law or social justice oriented careers.


Living
The PLSLLC is located in Parks Tower, which houses only first-year students under the age of 21. Parks Tower offers residents an alcohol-free environment with two-person bedrooms and community bathrooms. This air-conditioned complex has in-hall dining which is open 24-hours a day.

Learning
Academics are the focus of floor on the PLSLLC. Residents live with students who take the same classes and upper-class peer mentors live on the floor to offer support to first-year residents. Programming is offered in conjunction with the College of Arts & Sciences and students have numerous opportunities to interact with faculty and staff inside the residence hall. Additionally, residents have advising hours and student support office hours on their floor. Download our brochure for additional information.

Community
Students living on the PLSLLC floor develop an academic-centered community with floor programming and social events enhancing this focus. As a member of the floor, you will have the opportunity to live with students taking many of the same classes and attending the same college functions.

Students who live in the PLSLLC are required to pay a $50 programming fee per semester.
