College of Arts & Sciences Learning Community

Thank you for your interest in the College of Arts and Sciences LLC. 

What is a learning community?

Learning communities provide students with an opportunity to study, live, and network with peers who share their interests. Students in the CAS Learning Community live in Wright Hall, have access to common areas for studying and other events, benefit from events planned specifically around their interests and goals, and form professional relationships with upper class student mentors. 

Why should I participate?

Students living and learning in these communities begin their college career with a network of smart, engaged, and motivated learners. Building friendships with peers who share interests, who may have similar career objectives, and who are at the same stage of course work, provides a network unparalleled in the college experience. We have found that students in learning communities are often also members in other student organizations and active participants in the life of the Kent State community.

What are the benefits of joining the CAS LLC?

  • Community-based events, including career-oriented sessions
    • Academic and Fun, social events each  month
  • Residing together in Wright Hall
