Health & Wellness Living Learning Community

The Health & Wellness Living Learning Community is for first-year students who are interested in living in a community that is committed to a lifestyle without the influence of alcohol and other drugs. Residents in this community will agree to refrain from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs and the misuse of prescription drugs. They also agree that they will not return to their community intoxicated or host guests that are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 

Residents will be able to participate in educational strategies that promote healthy living while in college. Residents in this community would be asked to agree to terms and conditions for living within the community which support these expectations of each other. This community will be open to new students of all majors. 

The Health & Wellness Living Learning Community will be housed in Letts Hall in the 2014-2015 academic year.

Residents, or academy fellows, can discover and develop their leadership identity within a community of learners with activities facilitated by a dynamic group of student leaders, faculty and staff at American University.

Interested students can reserve space in the Living Learning Community through the housing application.
