“Creative Collective” Living Learning Community

A living learning community is an environment where students with similar interests live together and participate in specially designed programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs. The Creative Collective community are the storytellers, the music-makers, poets, artists, designers, movers, and dreamers. “Through creativity we interpret and express the world around us and within ourselves, making connections that bring our campus community together.”
