First-Generation Student Experience Community

New for fall 2020 and slated to be housed in Anderson Hall, the First-Generation Student Transition Living Learning Community (LLC) is a partnership between Residential Life, TRIO, and the Promise Scholarship Program, offering three sections of COR 101 for incoming students who are the first in their family to go to college. This new LLC will strive to provide students with the resources, support, and tools needed to make the most out of their first semester at USM. Small classes with student mentors provide students in the First-Generation Student Experience LLC with a close-knit community in which they can explore how to best access and utilize university resources, learn the ins and outs of college, and develop strong relationships with peers and mentors.
