Honors College LLC

Students in the Honors Living-Learning Community join a supportive, close-knit environment in a campus residence hall reserved just for Honors College students.

In this stimulating intellectual and social atmosphere, you will enjoy opportunities for informal discussions and programs focusing on the main Honors College pillars of academic, social, personal, leadership, and vocational growth.


New for the 23-24 Academic Year, the Signature Experience is an exciting opportunity for incoming first-year students who are highly invested in their major!

Students who apply for and are accepted into the Signature Experience will have guaranteed housing in the residence hall that correlates with their LLC, live amongst peers in their field of study, have priority to LLC opportunities and resources, receive special access to major courses in their first year at Ball State, and develop valuable connections with faculty members.
