Elon’s Service Learning Community (SLC), the oldest living-learning community on campus, is a residential option for students interested in community service. SLC members live together on the same floor in Virginia Residence Hall and participate in service projects, community activities, social functions and reflection sessions throughout the year. The SLC is a great option for students who are interested in pursuing service in their first year at Elon while making great friends with others who have similar passions. Though intimately involved in the program, students will have plenty of free time to become involved in other campus activities outside the SLC. View the SLC brochure.
