Unique Housing Option for COE Students

Students with majors in the College of Education are approved to take part in an unique housing program called the Eagle Educators Living-Learning Community. The goal of this community is to help participants successfully transition to college life, be academically successful in their first year, and give them the opportunity to have meaningful dialogue with faculty about the diverse and complex needs of the U.S. education system.  Through common courses and social events, students in this community are able to engage in community service, develop their skills as educators and leaders, and form life-long bonds with their peers. For more information on joining this community and its requirements, please see the Eagle Educators Living-Learning Community information guide or visit University Housings Residential Learning Communities website
