Living Learning Communities
Marymount currently offers three different Living Learning Communities (LLC) on Main Campus in Ostapenko Hall. Each LLC provides its residents with an atmosphere dedicated to academic success, student support and a community build around shared interests.
SOAR (Service, Outreach, and Responsibility)
The SOAR Living Learning Community is designed to provide students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the importance of Service; to volunteer with peers in the community; and to improve leadership skills and abilities. On campus and in the Marymount community, the SOAR LLC encourages active student engagement. Throughout the year, students will participate in leadership activities, service projects, and other specialized programming. Residents will learn about the various ways they can contribute to the campus, local, and global communities in the present and future. The SOAR Living Learning Community is open to all majors, and Spirit of Service Scholars will be encouraged to join as part of their program.
Honors Living Learning Community
Requirements: must be a honors student.
The Marymount University Honors residential learning community on the G100 floor of Ostapenko Hall focuses on cultivating students’ research, communication, and critical thinking skills. Students will have access to a dedicated honors lounge in Ostapenko Hall where they will have the resources to succeed in this rigorous academic environment such as seminars and direct faculty engagement. This diverse living learning environment allows scholars to live with mixed class years and be mentored by upper-class students. Out-of-class activities with faculty from the Honors program, access to study partners and group project members, and social activities will be designed by a LLC planning committee.
