Living Learning Communities

Mount Mercy University’s Living Learning Communities allow our residents to live with others who share their interests, in a smaller and theme-focused residential environment.

Mount Mercy University is a residential campus catering to the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of the whole student. One specific initiative, Living Learning Communities, aims to bolster traditional age student success and interaction with faculty, staff, and alumni members. Mount Mercy University’s Living Learning Communities are designed for first year students living on campus.  After the first year, students may apply to be in the sophomore living learning community.   

2013-14 Living Learning Communities:

When you become a resident of our Living Learning Communities you can take advantage of all of the benefits:

  • Activities and programs based on your interests and values
  • Built-in opportunities for networking, study groups and tutor sessions
  • Self-governance on the floor to create the feel of a strong community
  • Faculty and staff mentors who spend time with you – on your schedule and in your living space

 Living Learning Community themes vary from year to year. Examples of past Living Learning Communities include Nursing, Business Leadership, and Women and Wellness Sophomore Experience. 

LLCs — as they are known — create a small, close-knit community with the students. For more information about Living Learning Communities, contact Bianca Hicks or at 319-363-1323 x1600. And check out photos of students in this year's LLC.
