Living Learning Communities
Creating meaningful leadership development and community outreach opportunities
A living learning community (LLC) is a housing option for residential students to live amongst others with like-minded interests, goals and/or passions. Student Life staff and student leaders build special programs and activities to make the living experience in Sed Min impactful and memorable. This experiences offers a chance for students to discover more about themselves and the talents they bring to a community. Each month, students complete at least seven hours of community service.
What is the Sed Min Household?
The Sed Min Household is a Living Learning Community centered on developing students into passionate leaders who serve their community and each other. Throughout the year, we focus on leadership and personal development, as well as community outreach programs to provide a one-of-a-kind living experience for first-year students. This community is found within Belk Residence Hall on Queens' campus, and offers a small, home away from home feel that allows residents to build strong relationships and connections with each other. Being a part of this program is application based, and sign-ups begin during the summer during housing registration.
The Sed Min Household provides meaningful leadership development and community outreach opportunities to first-year students. Through reflection, communication, and fairness, we create an environment of mutual trust, respect, and inclusion to meet the Queen's motto: "not to be served, but to serve."
What makes this experience unique?
Giving Back: Giving back to the greater community is the heart of this Living Learning Community. In partnership with the division of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement, students will have access to non-profits from all over the Charlotte area such as Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Crisis Assistance Ministries and more! In fact, over Fall Break, the Sed Min Household will be serving with a non-profit in Charleston, South Carolina.
Development: Our number one priority is the student experience. Being a part of the Sed Min Household offers a chance for students to learn more about themselves as individuals, as team members, and as leaders. Residents have the opportunity to engage in personal and leadership development, while finding what passions drive them to be better. Professional staff and student leaders assist students in setting goals and strategic plans throughout the year to attain those goals.
Community: Sed Min Household students live in Belk Residence Hall - a historic community-style hall right on the residential quad. Belk is a two-story hall that allows for special relationships to form for up to eighty residents.
