Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Wellness LLC all about exercise and physical health?

No, we expand far beyond the realm of physical wellness. The Wellness LLC also focuses on psychological, spiritual and community wellness. We expect students to gain a balanced understanding of wellness as a multi-dimensional discipline.

Is Wellness LLC the same as a substance free housing option?

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.

Can I only minor in Wellness if I join the Wellness LLC?

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.

Do I pay extra to be in an LLC?

No! It is a great value added program to your DU education.

Can I apply to more than one LLC?

Yes. We encourage this. Since these programs fill up fast, you will want to apply early. If you are accepted to more than one LLC you will be able to choose the one that best fits your interests.

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.

Words from the Well: Why should a new student join the Wellness LLC? 

  • The opportunity to be in a safe environment where they can study something more in depth than just in the classroom. 
  • Any student should join the WLLC because wellness is ubiquitous; it relates to every single person. This distinguishes it from the other LLCs which might require more specific interests.
  • There is no other class like the WLLC! This class contains ideas that are very important to one's wellbeing and it is a great opportunity to grow as a person.
