Service Learning Community

Join this community of Elon students dedicated to learning about the world around them and making a difference!
 
Elon’s Service Learning Community (SLC), the oldest living-learning community on campus, is a residential option for students interested in 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 for additional information. Students in the SLC are exposed to a variety of service opportunities in and around campus and have the option to earn their Experiential Learning Requirement through service. Learn more about the ELR here.
 
Visit the Residence Life Web site for more details about the SLC and to apply through the online housing application.  Entrance to the SLC is by application only and requires a short essay, which is available on page three of the housing application.
