Business

A group of students gathered together in a lounge viewing power point study guide.

Business LLC students give a presentation at career services.


The Business Living Learning Community consists of first-year students who are engaged in the first-year curriculum of the Walton College of Business and several co-curricular activities.

This type of community provides a close working relationship among students and faculty through structured academic and social events each month. This involvement will not exceed 2 hours per week.

Students in the LLC are likely to get together often for studying, reviewing, and discussing course work in the residence hall.

While the Business LLC is open to any freshman business student, those who plan to participate in Greek Life may find it difficult to manage the time commitments of both programs.

Students may not participate in both the Walton College Honors Program and the Business LLC.

It is located in Founders and Humphreys Halls.
