What Former Residents Say:

"Living with upperclassmen in Wallach has helped me a great deal as a first-year. It's great to have people who have [already] been through [their own first year] as a reference, especially when registering. It can be quiet in Wallach, which creates a great study environment. But if you're feeling social, all you have to do is walk out of your room and bother your neighbors."

“The LLC hosts many annual events that are community-building. If you are a first-year, you will find upperclassmen that live in the building that [can] be great resources."
