Intentional Living Communities offer older students an opportunity to deepen friendships in a largely self-governing environment. ILC housing is designed for smaller groups to live out a proposed theme with accountability from Residence Life. Students apply together as a group, and groups are chosen based on several criteria– including a commitment to the community standards, campus involvement, academic success, and plan for executing their proposed theme (i.e. sustainability, program leadership, club management) and contributing to campus.
Successful ILC group applicants for returning students will need to explain the following in their group application.
- Their chosen housing theme and the unique experience they hope to create.
- Ways their ILC will contribute to campus life through connections and programming.
- How the group will support each other academically, spiritually, and through co-curriculars.
- How the group will manage the physical space of their residence–maintaining cleanliness and a positive environment conducive to learning.
