The Impact Living-Learning Center (LLC) offers a community for Baylor students that quickly becomes their home away from home. Being a part of an LLC means being a part of a community that cares, has a desire to grow, and places importance on both the in- and out-of-class experience. Based on recent national research, students living in an LLC were shown to exhibit higher rates of campus belonging, higher career attitudes, higher scores in critical thinking disposition, and higher rates of intervention during bystander situations (ACREO, 2018).
In Impact, we care about whole-person development, which is why we intentionally design programs and spaces to supplement the Baylor student experience. The following note from our Program Director explains more:
Welcome to Baylor, welcome to Impact, and welcome home. I am glad you stopped by to consider being a part of the Impact community. There are many great options for residency at Baylor your first year. As you continue researching the unique living arrangements on campus, I hope you will consider being a part of a community that emphasizes your growth, success, and impact on the world.
Our mission speaks about addressing the world’s greatest problems through the impact of education, service, and civic involvement. Through our programs, traditions, and activities, our Impact residents get to partake in an experience that positively contributes to college life at Baylor.
I invite you to take a few minutes to explore our website. You can read more on what we are all about here in Impact and can find details on our unique amenities, such as a game room, fitness room, faculty-in-residence, chaplain, in-house graduate tutor, program traditions, and much more. If you have any questions, please let me know. Again, welcome home!
