CASA SOL Living Learning Community

stock 001

CASA SOL is a Living Learning Community (LLC) where Chicano and Latino first-year students, both freshman and transfer, work with Chicano and Latino faculty and staff towards a great first year. Living Learning Communities offer you the opportunity to live and connect with students who share similar interests, backgrounds, and academic and personal goals in a designated residence hall area. In the case of CASA SOL, you have the option to be part of our community as a commuter student (if you plan to live at home or in an apartment) or as an on-campus student. On-campus CASA SOL students live together in a community-specific area of the Sanford residence hall.

CASA SOL gives you the opportunity to:

  • connect with the Latina/o community on campus
  • find academic support
  • explore leadership opportunities

CASA SOL students participate:

  • In Chicano and Latino Studies classes
  • Cultural events
  • Networking events
  • Workshops
  • Fall Retreat

 We invite you to be a part of our CASA SOL familia.
