The Environmental Design (ENVD) Living Learning Community (LLC) is a unique community in that all students accepted into the Environmental Design program are required to live together and participate in the LLC.  As part of the ENVD First-Year Experience Program, students will create meaningful connections with their cohort, engage in social and academic events, as well as develop a deeper understanding of the importance of diversity, equity, inclusion and allyship.

Directed by Dylan West, assistant director of advising and first-year experience, and Jade Polizzi, ENVD senior instructor, the ENVD LLC will provide support from both an advising and academic lens. A team of friendly and highly skilled first-year mentors will provide support and mentorship from a peer-to-peer lens. Our mission is to provide students with the tools and community to continue their design education career in confidence beyond the first year.
