Second Year Living Community (2YLC)

What is the Second Year Living Community?

The Second Year Living Community, or 2YLC, is a program designed to foster success and growth in students during their second year of college.  Within this community, participants will have the opportunity to develop relationships with their peers by engaging in programs, events, and experiences that are specifically targeted to their goals.  The program also focuses on reflection of these experiences and how they will lead to future success.

For the 2021-2022 academic year, 2YLC will be housed within the entirety of  Lauterbur Hall. If the program grows beyond Lauterbur’s capacity, additional spaces may be allocated in the upper floors of Yang.

Program Overview and Requirements
