on psychological, spiritual and community wellness. We expect students to gain a balanced
understanding of wellness as a multi-dimensional discipline.
All residence halls at DU are substance free. While there are floors in the residence
halls which are designated as substance free, in which all residents of the floor
have made the decision to live a substance free lifestyle, the Wellness LLC floor
does not require that students make this commitment. As a result of the Wellness LLC
students commitment to a healthful lifestyle our students are typically more prepared
to make good decisions during their time at DU.
Some students choose to minor in Wellness if they are not in the LLC, but starting
to acquire credits during your first year of school is a great way to get started
on your minor if you choose to go that route. The WLLC academic courses you take during
your first year can go toward your minor. Those in the Wellness LLC are not required
or committed to a Wellness minor.

be given after you have been accepted to DU. You will also need to apply for Housing

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.
