Living Learning Communities
O'Connor is home to the living learning communities for first-year students.
  • In the spirit of Nazareth College’s founding, residents in the Interfaith Solidarity & Social Justice LLC explore the relationship between spirituality and social justice. Through the use of personality inventories, the study of the world’s religions and by participating in interfaith dialogue, members reflect on what it means to become a change maker on the Nazareth campus and in our world.
  • In the Psychology LLC, you have an opportunity to connect with others on your floor and in classes to question, share, challenge, research, and integrate your experiences through shared discussions about the biology of behavior, learning and memory, social interaction, human development, and mental health.
  • The Leadership LLC is designed for students who want to build confidence, leadership skills, and a network of peers who want to be changemakers. If you are living in the Leadership LLC, you will also be able to participate in the Leadership Fellows program in your very first semester at Nazareth.
