Living Learning Community
Friel is home to 4 Living Learning Communities focussing on community engagement.
A Living Learning Community (LLC) is a dedicated space in residence where residents are grouped according to their interest in a particular area. Programming for LLCs focuses on these areas of interest, and offers enhanced opportunities for connection and development beyond the classroom.
Do you like helping others? By joining one of the four living learning communities in the Friel residence and getting involved in volunteer activities, you will acquire new skills, make new friends and apply some of your classroom knowledge to real life situations.
