The following is the list of current Living Learning Communities. If you have questions about any of these communities or if you would like more information, please contact us.
Advocates for Sports (Smith Hall)
Our focus is on the awareness of the benefits of athletics and the worthwhile lessons and personality traits developed from participating in sports. The athlete stereotype can often have negative connotations, however being involved in athletics teaches individuals far more than one can imagine. Our goal is to emphasize the traits developed through athletics, and encourage the community to get involved.
Artbox (Smith Hall)
The purpose of our Living & Learning Community is to bring awareness to the importance of creation and art in the lives of children and adults. The arts have impacted us all and have played an important role in our education. The issue we are directly addressing is the defunding of arts programs in schools, which we consider equally important to all other subject areas that are taught. However, art programs tend to be first to lose funding after budget cuts in schools. Our learning goals are to learn more about art and crafts techniques, discover how to best share our art and the process of creation with the community, and to learn how we can best help support art programs in schools. Our members wish to gain more knowledge of art techniques and to get the chance to express themselves with art regularly. We all hope to gain insight on how we can help the community see the importance of arts that we recognize. This experience will help us further grow and become more active citizens with a focus on a topic we all enjoy- the arts.
BACO Umoja (Armstrong House)
The Black Awareness Cultural Organization (BACO) is a union that will confront problems and concerns of Black students, as well as help to provide avenues for change for all human beings. As house and community members, we will focus on making ourselves available to all. The core purpose/value of the house will be to offer a place of refuge for anyone who has felt discriminated against because of their race, sexuality, spirituality, gender, or ideas as a human being. The Intercultural Life office will be a pivotal force in the process of every program and event.
Cornell Advocates for Safety CASH (Armstrong House)
Cornell Advocates for Safety and Health is a group of students passionate about facilitating personal health and well-being through the promotion of drug safety, safer sex, and mental health. This group educates and supports a community that fosters personal growth and fulfillment, both on and off campus. Group members participate actively through weekly meetings and monthly events, allowing for our goals to be met, and for health and safety to be encouraged throughout the community.
Lifelong Health & Wellness (Smith Hall)
In the college setting, students are given the opportunity to make independent decisions regarding their health. But, when presented the choice, many students are not choosing to lead healthy lifestyles, which attributes to the country’s increased rates of obesity and heart disease. We, as an LLC, hope to convince our fellow students, and selves, to make healthier long-term life choices, by promoting proper nutritional choices, routine exercise, and mental health awareness.
Third Wave Resource Group (Cottage House)
Third Wave Resource Group (TWRG) is a student rights and resource group centered in The Cottage, a safe, comfortable environment for community members which provides information, equality and empowerment informed by feminism. Resources we provide include: Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Advocacy, Access to Safe Room, Emergency Transportation, Library, Kitchen, Sewing Room, Safe Zone, Confidentiality.
