Living & Learning Community
Participating in the Honors & Scholars Living & Learning Community (LLC) provides our students with a community of like-minded, high-achieving students in the Honors & Scholars exclusive residence, Dogwood Hall. The mission of the Honors & Scholars LLC is to create a residential environment where students are encouraged to achieve academic excellence, engage in service, and make a positive contributions to their communities. Programming like academic lectures, field trips, community dinners, and service, affords each LLC student the opportunity to not only meet their program requirements, but also develop connections with faculty, staff, and peers. By joining our LLC, Honors & Scholars students live, learn, and work together!
Dogwood Hall is the official residence hall of the Honors & Scholars LLC. To live in Dogwood Hall, a student must apply and be accepted into the Honors & Scholars LLC. Suite-style rooms house first-year students while apartment-style rooms are reserved for upper-division students. The option to live in Dogwood Hall is open to members of all Honors & Scholars programs (1794 Scholars, Chancellor’s Honors, Haslam Scholars, and Honors Leadership), but is filled on a first come, first served basis* by students who complete the LLC application.
