Honors Living Learning Community

Sponored By: Dorothy & Bill Cohen Honors College

Through living and learning together, students prepare to be successful in Honors, in academic departments, on campus, and in the Wichita community. The Honors LLC is designed to develop reflective and transformational campus and community leaders, and students are expected to commit passionately to a cause larger than themselves.

Why Join?
Students join the Honors LLC for many reasons, but all are driven by a love of learning. The ideal student for the Honors LLC is one who enjoys scholarship, craves challenges, appreciates a diverse perspective on current issues, and wants to be connected with likeminded students and dedicated faculty from the minute they step foot on campus until long after they step off the commencement stage.

Students must be admitted into the Honors College before applying. Limited to incoming first year students, exceptions can be made for continuing students if there are still spaces available on the designated LLC floor.

Learning Outcomes
• Communicate effectively across disciplines and professions through curricular requirements and academic events
• Contribute to an intellectual, creative, and civic community through interactions in Honors student organizations and events

Past Programs
• Q & A with Honors Faculty
• Rocket Launch & Night at the Alley - Bowling & Arcade

Peer Academic Leader (PAL) Profile

Jeremy Grafke is very excited to be the Peer Academic Leader (PAL) for the Honors College Living Learning Community (LLC). Jeremy is a sophomore, majoring in Sport Management. He spends his free time playing and watching all types of sports and if Star Wars is involved in any way, you can count him in to the activity. He is involved with his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, many intramurals, and the Honors College. Jeremy chose Sport Management because it’s his passion and loves being involved with it. He thinks everyone should join an LLC because LLCs give you great opportunities that you might not get otherwise and get to meet people with similar interests as yourself. Jeremy is most excited to get to know his residents and hopes you all choose to be in an LLC!
