Living and Learning Communities at the College of Charleston bridge in-class student learning opportunities and out-of-class residential environments that heighten student intellectual and personal growth. They are designed to integrate curricular and co-curricular experiences that enhance classroom learning. These communities foster faculty and student interaction in a purposeful manner.
Each floor on McConnell hall has an individual Living & Learning Community theme which is the basis for academic and social programming throughout the semester. Students delve into each topic of which they have a specific interest in while being supported by peers, faculty, and residential staff.
Additionally, the McConnell Social Club is a dedicated space for programming, student gatherings, and just hanging out in a "coffee-shop" feel with a flat screen, bar chairs, tables, and couches.
