TLC - Themed Living Communities

TLC BannerStockton University first-year students can choose from a variety of themed residence halls intentionally designed to help students achieve career goals and personal growth. We call these experience-based learning places Theme Living Communities(TLC).

 

Currently, we have five TLCs, LIVE Clean, Go Green, Multicultural LIVE, LIVE (H)S.T.E.M. – Health Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math, Leadership Discovery LIVE, and LIVE Lavender. These unique themed communities may reside within the Housing 1, 2, and 3 complexes.
Each of these themed communities has its own focus, specific objectives, excursions, and programs. Additionally, each themed community aims to help students develop transferable skills for the future.
We invite you to learn more about what these communities offer. You are sure to find a TLC where your talents and ambitions can be realized and enhanced.

 

Live Clean and Go Green:
The Live Cl­ean and Go Green TLC will encourage residents to consider personal, regional, and global perspectives on sustainability. This TLC includes “green gatherings,” a bi-weekly social, to continue critical dialogue and share ideas, news, and the impact around sustainability. The programming will focus on exploring the pine barren, lake Fred, community garden, and attending events on campus focused on living green. The passionate residence assistants will complement the objectives of the Live Clean and Go Green TLC by inviting guest speakers to educate and engage students in dialogue related to sustainability, environmental crisis, etc. Whether you are interested in climate change, personal health, or just want to live more lightly on the earth, this themed floor is for you.

Multicultural LIVE
The Multicultural LIVE explores the idea of what it means to be an active member of the community to promote social justice issues in a global society. They will work to define social justice and diversity in their own terms by sharing stories from personal experience or current events. This community can be an outlet of expression through poetry, art, songs, music, etc. This TLC focuses on helping residents increase their ability to generate ideas, combat challenges, and recognize opportunities for self-expression to become activists in their communities. Students will have the opportunity patriciate in Green Dot & By-stander interventions trainings, field trips to museums, and discussions concentrated on global awareness, cultural connectedness, current political climate and social justice issues.

LIVE (H) S.T.E.M. – Health Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
The (H) STEM TLC meets the needs of incoming-freshmen who are interested in health science, engineering, technology, and math areas as their majors. This TLC will assist residents in achieving academic excellence, develop personal success, and support successful career development in (H)STEM. We will provide direct tutoring on the floor for the (H)STEM residents. This TLC will pave the path to making strong faculty and staff connections by taking residents to on campus research symposiums, workshops, lectures, and discussions focused on (H)STEM and help student readiness for careers in STEM fields (ex: StockHack, Graduate Students Research Symposium, career fair). LIVE (H) S.T.E.M. is not only great for forming study groups and getting moral support, but also great for making friends with first year students interested in the same things as you.

The benefits of living in this TLC will include career development, time management skills, strength finder, organizational psychology, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, public speaking, and presentation skills.
