Will the First-Generation Living Learning Community continue in the fall/spring semester?
Our staff is planning both in-person and virtual programing to connect with our students during the academic year semester. Depending on university policy and the event itself, the LLC will offer both virtual and in-person programming. We will continue to find creative ways for students to connect first-generation college students with the resources, staff, and one another, while celebrating all of their hard work during their first year.
What steps will be taken in order to promote the health and wellbeing of the First-Generation Living Learning Community?
Should in-person events be deemed appropriate by the university, the First-Generation LLC has taken steps such as reserving large meeting rooms for our events and finding food options that are served in individual packaging. The LLC events will also take into account social distancing measures as well as increased hygiene efforts. Our staff is working to create virtual options as well, both in the event should a student wish to take greater steps to socially distance or if the university makes the decision that events such as this be held virtually.
Do I have to have a roommate?
There are very few single spaces on campus. If you request a single space and we are unable to accommodate your request, you will be offered a shared space. Additionally, you will automatically be put on our single space waiting list.
How can I assure the cleanliness of the restrooms and other public spaces?
University Housing and Dining are using best practices based on guidance from the CDC in the use of cleaning supplies and the frequency of scheduled cleanings of community spaces and high touch point areas.
