Student Connection Programs
The Student Connection Programs area within the Highlander Success Center focuses on building programs and offering opportunities for connection for first year students, second year students, commuter students, and transfer students. Our programs will help students connect all areas of their lives including academics, co-curricular experiences, social interactions, and career plans. In addition to programs created specifically for the students we serve, we help students connect with faculty, a key contributor to student success, and experiential learning opportunities where they can apply their learning through undergraduate research, service projects, and exposure to new people and experiences.
Radford University offers several unique living-learning communities that provide residents an opportunity to deeply engage with faculty, academics, and peers with similar interests.
LLCs are small groups of students that typically take one or more courses together focusing on a common theme or discipline. Faculty and peer instructor teams work together to assign readings, create assignments and coordinate activities that connect the courses. Students engaged in a learning community are able to build both intellectual and social relationships with classmates and faculty through shared experiences and increased time together.
