LLC Kick-Off Events

Kick-Off Your LLC Experience

Each Fall semester we host welcome back, or Kick-Off Events, for all of our Living-Learning Community (LLC) students!

Kick-Off Events are hosted for each LLC to promote campus connections, build relationships and increase engagement among the students within our 33 LLCs! We hope that LLC students will join us to move-in during LLC Move-In Day (September 1, 2017) as well as for our LLC Friday Night Welcome Event: PlayFair!

PlayFair Event Description: In partnership with the Office of Student Activities & Leadership, LLC residents will attend and participate in PlayFair, a team-building experience that will have long-lasting effects on the members of our campus community. This powerful program is designed to build campus unity and school spirit. PlayFair is totally unlike anything else you have ever experienced. It's entertainment! It's fun! It's the perfect way to make new campus friendships! PlayFair will take place at the Campus Recreation Center at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 1. See you there!!
