Living Learning Community

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community (LLC) is a home for the dreamers, creators, and doers. Partnering with the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Tabor School of Business, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship LLC offers opportunities for fellowship, idea to incubator programming, and professional development. In addition to Innovation and Entrepreneurship LLC opportunities, residents share a floor with the Global Citizenship Living Learning Community and enjoy the benefits of collaborative programming.

Based on Residential Student Satisfaction Surveys, 83% of students state that LLCs have stronger communities and 75% state that living in an LLC results in better academic performances.

Meet your Resident Assistant

Hi!  I’m Collin Krakowiecki, a sophomore Accounting major with a minor in Finance. I am the Resident Assistant for the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community. As well as being an RA, I am involved on campus as a leadership scholar, and am the Vice President of Academic Affairs for Student Senate. Along with the work I do for the Office of Residence Life, I also work for the Office of Admissions and the Athletics Department. I love being a member of the Millikin community, and to me that is what Millikin is all about: community. You will hear many people say that you cannot go from one place to another on campus without seeing someone you know, and that is what makes Millikin so great. I am looking forward to this academic year and all the exciting things Millikin and the Tabor School of Business have in store!

At most schools, you get matched with a roommate by someone who doesn’t know either of you; they use a formula or a basic questionnaire. The Living Learning Communities at Millikin pair you with students who have similar academic pursuits as you, as well as similar interests and hobbies. Having a community of people who all study within the Tabor School of Business allows for a closer community and easier access to resources. From study help to group projects, having your peers and classmates in the same living community will make your first year at Millikin a great experience.
