The Leadership Community allows first-year students with an interest in public service and policy to live together in the residence halls. As an undergraduate student, you will spend an average of only 15-20 hours a week in the classroom. It is important that where you live and spend the majority of your time is a friendly and supportive environment, both academically and socially.

In the John Glenn Civic Leadership Community, the fun begins BEFORE the first day of class! You will participate in an early arrival program that puts you on campus two days before the arrival of the full freshman class for a special orientation.

Throughout the year, Learning Community programming is focused areas: Policy, Academics, Service, Advocacy and Social.
