Living Learning Centers are residential communities organized by academic discipline or program. The Science and Health LLC was designed for students pursuing a degree in science and/or are interested in entering the health professions after graduation. The Science and Health LLC, also called Earle Hall, is under the direction of the Office of Pre-Health Studies. As such, we pay special attention to students designated as pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-optometry, pre-veterinary, and other pre-health professions.
The Science and Health LLC has eight academic partners:
Psychology and Neuroscience Department
Chemistry and Biochemistry Department
Medical Humanities Program
Communication Sciences and Disorders Department
Health, Human Performance and Recreation Department (HHPR)
At Earle we strive for academic excellence and encourage our students to help each other with their classes by forming study groups and mentoring the younger students. We have study spaces that are ideal for studying with white walls special for dry erase markers.
Downstairs we have two more study rooms for more formal group meetings. Close to these rooms is a beautiful library for quiet study time.
Opened for the first time in August 2013, the Science and Health LLC has proven to be very popular with students. In our first year, over half the students living at the LLC were freshmen.
With only 340 beds (190 female and 150 male), spaces in this popular program are limited. Applications open in mid-November and remain open until July. There is a minimum score of 1170 in the new SAT (math and verbal only - 1100 in the old SAT) or 24 in the ACT (superscore). The Science and Health LLC is not a first come first serve residence hall. Each applicant is carefully considered. For questions about this LLC, please email EarleHall@baylor.edu.
