ENGAGEMENT

Engagement

There are plenty of ways to get involved in the School of Business! Look below for a few of our opportunities- from being part of Living Learning Community (LLC), to connecting with a faculty mentor.

 

The Business and Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community

The Business and Entrepreneurship LLC Experience:

The School of Business partners with the Office of Housing and Residential Life to create a unique Business and Entrepreneurship LLC experience. Students in the LLC have the opportunity to live with other students that have similar interests. Students in the LLC have programs created to get the most out of their experience, with past programs focusing on community building, well-being, civic learning and community engagement, and career readiness (resume building, company site visits, etc.).

The LLC is open to freshmen and upperclassmen students. Our freshmen and upperclassmen cohorts are housed in separate dorms but come together for community-wide programs. Students in the freshmen LLC take two courses (BUS 100 + BUS 103) together as a cohort. Students in the upperclassmen LLC do not have a required course.

Students may become part of the LLC by applying to housing and selecting the Business and Entrepreneurship LLC. Please look on the Office of Housing and Residential Life’s website to find the Housing Portal.

 

The Peer Mentor Program:

The 2019-2020 Academic Year is the pilot year for the Peer Mentor Program within the Business and Entrepreneurship LLC. Upperclassmen Mason students serve as Peer Mentors to freshmen students in the LLC, by providing guidance through attending LLC programs and encouraging meaningful conversations. Peer Mentors will aid in the transition for first-year students to campus and Mason’s policies and expectations.
