  • Living Learning Communities (LLCs) offer a unique opportunity to connect classroom learning with a residential community.

    At CSP, we’re excited to offer two LLC opportunities for our first-year students. These LLCs provide first-year students the opportunity to meet professionals in their field, visit businesses and companies for class credit, develop leadership skills, and establish a close-knit community at no additional cost to you.
