Living Learning Communities
Live Together, Learn Together
SUNY Delhi offers specialized Living Learning Communities where students in the same academic program can benefit from peer tutoring, a quiet study environment, and the support of a close-knit community.
Research shows that living and participating in this kind of focused learning environment leads to higher GPAs and a greater amount of credit hours earned.
