Living Learning Communities offer students a unique opportunity to live in an on-campus community of peers with similar interests. Elon has 25 LLCs, with themes ranging from Gender and Sexuality to Outdoor Learning. This year, the Elon community voted the Communications LLC "Best LLC.”
Located on the first floor of Sloan Hall in Historic Neighborhood, the Communications LLC is intended for freshmen who plan to major or minor in communications, and it brings together passionate, motivated students to live in community.
Freshman Jack Prahinski lives in the LLC and said the opportunity to bond over shared interests is unique.
“It’s been nice to have people with similar interests to live and work with,” Prahinski said. “It’s easier to build relationships with people similar to me.”
Professor of Strategic Communications Michele Lashley is one of the two faculty advisers for the LLC. This is her third year as an adviser, working alongside Professor of Strategic Communications Jessalynn Strauss.
“We really enjoy working with students, advising students and being involved in their lives as they get adjusted to Elon and college life,” Lashley said. “We were approached about taking on the Comm LLC, and it was a perfect fit for both of us.”
