The application deadline date for the 2020-2021 FAMU Living-Learning Community (LLC) Program is May 1, 2020. Applications are currently being accepted in the following major areas: Allied Health Sciences, Agriculture & Food Sciences, Business & Industry, Journalism & Graphic Communication, Education, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Nursing, Pharmacy, Science & Technology, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and the Provost’s Leadership Living-Learning Community (all majors/university scholars only). Incoming freshmen students who share common academic interests will live together in the residence hall (Polkinghorne Village) and interact with faculty in both residential and classroom settings. The LLC program provides incoming freshmen students with unique opportunities for faculty engagement, active learning, and collaboration with peers. Students will also participate in focused out-of-class learning experiences such as study groups, community service projects, career exploration/field trips, mentoring, leadership development, global education, and cultural and social activities. Incoming freshmen who have already been admitted to the University are encouraged to apply for one of the LLC options via the Housing/LLC application process.
