The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) Living & Learning Community provides incoming/first-year students with opportunities to connect with classmates and explore the various programs of study within the college. Students participate in experiential learning workshops, programs, a teambuilding/first-year studies course, and field trips conducted by various faculty and staff members throughout CASNR for the purpose of learning how all majors/departments in the college are interconnected. Furthermore, participants impact the Knoxville community by completing group-based service projects each semester. By living in the same residence hall and taking courses together, students quickly meet others who share the same academic or career interests, form study groups, and expand upon the educational component of their classes.

Community Requirements

CASNR Living & Learning community students must be first-year CASNR students with a CASNR major. Participants are required to enroll in AGNR 103: Teambuilding (during both the fall and spring semesters). CASNR Living & Learning participants are expected to attend class, participate in CASNR LLC programs and complete the required course assignments. Failure to enroll, attend and participate in the year-long course will result in early dismissal from the CASNR LLC Program.
