La Comunidad Learning Community
La Comunidad is a community for all students who are passionate for the Spanish-speaking world. Whether you are majoring or minoring in Spanish or just want to enhance your college experience, this is the place for you.
This close-knit community provides cultural and academic programming that encourages and builds your confidence to use Spanish communication in your every-day life. Through activities focusing on the Spanish language and culture immersion in a co-ed residential setting, members of this community are a part of something that goes well beyond the in-class experience.
Residential Requirement | First- and second-year students must live in the Learning Community to be a member. Third- and fourth-year students serve in a leadership role and do not have to live in the community to be a member. If you choose to live in the community, you can choose to room with someone who is a La Maison Française member -or- you can choose a roommate who is not.
About the Community | La Comunidad students live in a diverse population in Kohl Hall along with other highly ambitious and motivated students who are members of other learning communities. Students work, live and play together to ease the transition to college life, while gaining a deeper knowledge of the Spanish culture.
Kohl Hall | This hall is centrally located and steps away from the Bowen-Thompson Student Union and the Jerome Library. Kohl Hall is a traditional residence hall with a modern design and houses classrooms and faculty/staff offices. Amenities include an art studio, music room, study area, computer lab, laundry on each floor and a full community kitchen.
Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:
||Complete your housing application|
|Step 2||Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password|
|Step 3||Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term|
|Please Note||Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.
After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
