The Honors and Scholars Programs at the University of Tennessee foster student development through high impact practices like Living and Learning Communities (LLCs). Participating in the Honors and Scholars LLC allows our students to build a community of like-minded, high-achieving students while living together. The mission of the Honors and Scholars Living & Learning Community is to create residential environments where individuals are encouraged to achieve academic excellence, engage in service, and make a positive contributions to their communities. Through programming like academic lectures, field trips, community dinners, and service, each LLC student is afforded the opportunity to not only meet their program requirements, but also develop connections with faculty, staff, and peers. By joining an LLC, Honors and Scholars students live, learn, and work together!
The 1794 Scholars, Chancellor’s Honors, Haslam Scholars, and Honors Leadership programs share a first-year LLC. LLC specific activities and locations for the 2019-2020 academic year can be found in the box below. This LLC requires that a student be in good standing in their Honors and Scholars program.
Honors & Scholars LLC
In the Honors & Scholars LLC, members of all programs develop an appreciation for learning and a better understanding of the world through tailored programming in two locations: Brown Hall and Dogwood Hall. Students expand their academic interests through faculty lectures, learn about the world through a foreign film series, participate in service, and develop a community through LLC dinners and parties. These experiences help students meet semester requirements and explore university resources.
Additionally, LLC members can hone their leadership skills through participating in the LLC advisory board. This group collaboratively shapes the Honors & Scholars LLC experience by planning and executing activities for the semester.
All Haslam Scholars are required to live in the Honors & Scholars LLC during their first academic year of study.*
*Students are not required to live with other students in their specific program through the LLC. Members of the Honors & Scholars LLC can choose a roommate from any program (1794 Scholars, Chancellor’s Honors, Haslam Scholars, or Honors Leadership).
