A brief description of the themed housing, including name(s) and descriptions of theme(s):

Incoming students apply for a theme and their residence building is determined by this theme (called a Living Learning Community or LLC). The allocation of building to each theme differs each year based on the number of application to each theme as an attempt is made to satisfy everyone’s interests. The themes are: Sustainability, Change, Natural World, Social Justice, Globalization, Intersections, Faith and Reason, Honors and Space Place Sound. While Sustainability LLC is specifically sustainability focused most of the LLCs also have a sustainability and social responsibility aspect such as social service, care for the natural environment and community and globalization issues.
