For years, the University of Lynchburg has offered students with shared interests — athletics, academics, clubs, etc. — the opportunity to live together in what it calls Special Interest Housing. Recently, Courtney Kelsey, assistant director of housing and residence life, started thinking about how the experience could be better and more purposeful.
University of Lynchburg students can take advantage of three new residential learning communities opening in Fall 2019. The new learning communities — Spirituality, Wellness and Mindfulness; Dimensions of Diversity; and one for the Westover Honors College — will allow students to live nearby others with similar interests and participate in co-curricular programs together.
