World Languages & Cultures - Living & Learning Community

The World Languages & Cultures - Living & Learning Community is a group of first-year students who live together in a traditional residence hall community, take some classes together, and participate in extracurricular activities in order to gain language skills in Chinese, French, German, or Spanish and to learn how to be creative problem-solvers of grand challenges through Cultural Entrepreneurship. Students from any major across campus are welcome, including undeclared students, students with declared majors/minors in the Dept. of World Languages and Cultures, and students with little to no previous language experience. Students will have the opportunity to speak languages and learn about world cultures.
