Enjoy an immersive college experience by participating in a Pfeiffer living-learning community. These communities live in common residence halls, attend shared classes, participate in communal events, and have joint access to faculty and student support services.. At universities across the nation, living-learning communities have increased students’ academic performance, eased transitions to college, and strengthened social and relational bonds.
Find Your Community
Designed to supplement the Pfeiffer Journey experience, living-learning communities foster student connectivity through linked classes and community-building activities. Community members create leadership structures and community-living guidelines for their residence halls.
