Are you someone who likes to dive into intellectual—and spiritual—dialogue and connect that to loving service for the sake of creating and maintaining a good society? If so, then the Honors Living Learning Community is perfect for you! The Honors LLC is specialized for students in the Honors Program who want to focus on participating in special academic enrichment and service opportunities; building sound relationships with fellow students, faculty, and staff; and applying their knowledge, habits, and skills for a life lived well together.

The Honors Living Learning Community is open to both incoming and current students who have applied and been accepted into CUI’s Honors Program. For the Honors Program application process, see www.cui.edu/honors. While all Honors students may apply to live in the Honors LLC, space is finite. Preference is given to first-time college students to help them become a part of the CUI community and its Honors Program. Current Honors students are also encouraged to apply, particularly those who wish to serve as models and mentors for their younger peers.
Once accepted, to remain a resident of the Honors LLC, a student must remain in good standing in the Honors Program and be an active, honorable citizen in the Honors LLC.
