Living Learning Communities

We encourage Pre-Pharmacy students to live in the newly renovated Garcia Hall, the only Pre-Pharmacy LLC on the NMSU campus!

So what are LLCs? Simply put, Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are groups of students who live together in the residence halls based upon common interests and are a fabulous way to get connected on campus!  More than just social opportunities, LLCs have peer advisers and residential mentors working with each group to provide academic support.

There’’s no extra cost to live in an LLC, but the benefits are huge. – Data has proven that LLCs increase students’ satisfaction at school, in residence hall living, and also increases their interaction with faculty.

Students participating in the Pre-Pharmacy LLC live in Garcia Hall, a hall known for its strong sense of community and steeped in Aggie tradition. Built around four large patios, Garcia Hall is the largest of NMSU’s residence halls. Each room has recently been completely refurbished and has adjustable and loftable beds along with modern, moveable and storage friendly furniture, allowing each student to arrange their room to maximize space and usability. Each room is designed as a suite in which roommates share a bathroom with the residents of the adjoining room. Known for its high energy atmosphere and active environment, Garcia also contains La Vista Learning Center. La Vista features two state-of-the-art classrooms, study areas and computer labs.

Students participating in an LLC live in the same area of a residence hall or apartment community and have frequent opportunities to interact with other students, staff, and faculty who share common academic, professional, and/or personal interests. LLC residents also benefit from Faculty Advisors and specially-trained student staff who work together to provide an experience that bridges the gap between students’ academic and social lives, and increases their chance for success in college.
