Description

The Service Living Learning Community is for incoming first-year students interested in integrating into campus life through a community service lens. The Service LLC introduces students to Elon by providing opportunities to volunteer with campus and community organizations, while providing a foundation for social justice education through discussion of important local issues. The Service LLC provides an opportunity to become familiar with the local community outside of the Elon bubble, and offers a residential opportunity to live alongside other students who are passionate about service and want to be engaged on campus.

Since the Service LLC consists of entirely first-year students, much emphasis is placed on supporting floor members in their transition to Elon’s campus.  Students living in the Service LLC take their COR 110 Global Experience course together during their first semester in order to have a shared academic experience.  Additionally, three student leaders who previously lived on the Service LLC floor organize service projects and fun activities on and off campus, and provide mentorship and guidance throughout the school year.  Members have a Service LLC specific orientation early in the school year.

Members of the Service LLC deepen their service commitments in the spring as they delve into a long-term service experience with one local organization of their choosing.  Some floor members choose to pursue their Service Experiential Learning (ELR) requirements as result of their participation.
