The ENGAGE Living & Learning Community provides a supportive environment for first-year students who have a passion for volunteerism and social issues. ENGAGE is founded on establishing leadership skills, creating a community for first-year students, and encouraging personal growth by giving back to their community.
Students choosing to live in the ENGAGE community will benefit from living in the same residence hall as other first-year ENGAGE students and taking the same APSU 1000 course. Members will develop strong bonds and personal relationships with their peers while learning about & aiding the social issues present in the world, country, and our community. As an additional resource, members will have access to peer mentors from the ENGAGE Leadership Team, as well as the staff from the Community Engagement & Sustainability. The ENGAGE LLC meets weekly as a group for lessons, community service-projects, and family-style dinners.
ENGAGE students will:
Live on campus and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA
Become active participants in CES programming by taking leadership roles in various service opportunities for the general campus body
Commit to intentional community by coming together for weekly dinners and regular service projects
Live out their passions in community and form lasting relationships with their fellow students
Living communities like ENGAGE create a cohort of students with common passions and interests. ENGAGE gives students the opportunity to share their experiences with each other.
