LLC Options

Within the First-Year Experience Program (FYE) are six Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for students interested in pre-health professions; leadership; sustainability and the outdoors; teaching and social justice; music and community health services.

Freshmen who choose to participate in one of the LLCs will have the chance 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!

LLC Benefits

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.

How to Apply

Students accepted for fall 2019 can apply for an LLC by indicating interest on the housing application, available in the myOneonta portal. Applications are due June 22.


For questions, please contact the Office of Residential and Community Life at or 607-436-2514.

I’m glad I decided to live in an LLC because I’ve met people who are interested in the same things that I am, and the types of things I’m learning are what I need to be working on to be a great teacher someday.
