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 2022-2023 academic year, 2YLC will be housed within the entirety of Lauterbur Hall.

Program Overview and Requirements

Participants of 2YLC are required to complete monthly reflections about their goals, both academic and personal, and how experiences of the previous month contribute to those goals.

Participants of 2YLC are required to go to a set number of events over the course of each semester. 

These events will focus on the following domains:  

    • Academic  & Career Success
    • Wellness
    • Civic Engagement
    • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
