Should I apply before I find out if I am accepted to DU?
Yes! We recommend this as they fill fast. Notification of acceptance, however, will be given after you have been accepted to DU. You will also need to apply for Housing separately and then you will be placed on the correct LLC floor.
Will I get to know people outside my LLC floor?
Absolutely! This program helps you develop a strong base of friendships and networks that will go far beyond the floor you live on.
Can I be in the Honors Program and an LLC?
Yes, many students are in both. To be in an LLC however, you must live on the LLC floor your first year.
What is the time commitment and does an LLC go beyond the first year?
Every LLC requires your enrollment in a 2 credit hour weekly class each quarter. In addition you are expected to participate in 1-2 formal events every 2-3 weeks depending on the LLC theme. You'll of course enjoy the spontaneous friendships and activities that emerge on the floor adding to the many opportunities you have for social networking.
Do I still apply for Housing?
Yes! You should apply for Housing as soon as you are accepted to DU. The LLC office will then notify Housing of your acceptance into an LLC so that you are placed on the correct floor.
