What is a Living-Learning Community?

A Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a group of students who choose to live together in a Residence Hall to explore a common interest. Each LLC has a shared academic component (e.g., a course, faculty-led workshops, a service trip) and is strengthened by co-curricular experiences that align with the community's interests and goals.

The Learning Outcomes of our Living-Learning Communities are from the GLOBE document, which outlines outcomes for all SUNY Geneseo students upon graduation:

  1. Integrative Inquiry: To ask meaningful questions connecting personal experiences to academic study and co-curricular life; to synthesize multiple bodies of knowledge to address real-world problems and issues.
  2. Application and Transfer: To adapt and apply skills, theories, and methods gained in one or more domains to new situations.
  3. Reflection: To reflect upon changes in learning and outlook over time; to make personal, professional, and civic plans based on that self-reflection.


The Medical Interest Group, located in Steuben Hall, is an educational and social opportunity for students to engage in their interests beyond the classroom. We have a lot of students on campus who are interested in the medical fields. This housing group is designed to help support students as they pursue their varied interests in the health fields. This is a collaboration with academic departments (Biology, Chemistry, Psychology), other campus departments (University Police, Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation), Student Clubs and Organizations (Geneseo First Response, Phi Delta Epsilon), and off campus partners (University of Rochester, Geneseo Chiropractic) to help students find their passions and successfully navigate Geneseo’s curriculum to reach their academic and professional goals.

Learning Outcomes

1. Students living in the Medical Interest Group will engage with professors, medical professionals, peers, and career counselors to continue making steps toward their professional and academic goals.
