Within the First-Year Experience Program (FYE) are four Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for students interested in pre-health professions; leadership; sustainability and the outdoors; and teaching and social justice.
Freshmen students who choose to participate in one of the LLCs will have the opportunity to engage with others in an academic and residential community while exploring and adjusting to life at SUNY Oneonta. Since all of our LLCs are in our FYE halls, you get to experience both programs at the same time!
LLCs are an ideal way to make friends who have similar interests. Research shows that students who participate in an LLC have higher academic success rates, higher college graduation rates, higher levels of satisfaction with their college experience, and an easier time connecting with their peers.
You will enjoy mentoring, special programming and a ready-made social network for your first year of college. Each LLC requires participation in the one-credit First-Year Seminar and a class chosen by faculty. The First-Year Seminar classes will have an undergraduate student called a Transition Team Mentor, who will work with faculty to develop a positive classroom community and serve as a guide and resource for you.
