Living Learning Community
LEXengaged is a Living-Learning Community open to all incoming freshmen, regardless of major. Anyone with an interest in leadership, service learning, and social justice is encouraged to apply. The life skills gained and the sense of community is beneficial for students of any major—from biology to architecture to business.Through course discussions, guest speakers, and off-campus tours, students will obtain a better understanding of the larger community in which they live—Lexington—as well as develop a greater appreciation of the relationship between the University and the larger community. Students will be integrated through volunteering where issues are present in the community. Some examples include race and class, homelessness, hunger, and immigration. Equipped with knowledge about the University and the city enables students to be actively engaged as citizens and participate in the University and, correspondingly, Lexington, positively.
