Robinson Scholars

First Generation LLC

Freshmen scholars at the University of Kentucky are required to live on campus in a pre-designated residence hall where the First- Generation Living Learning Community (LLC) has been placed. All scholars are a member of this LLC, where they can interact with peers who come from similar backgrounds. The LLC helps build a sense of community that has always been a cornerstone of Appalachian culture. Students who participate in LLCs fare better than other students on a number of measures, including retention, GPA, and graduation rates.
