Thrive: Wellness Living Learning Community

Thrive: Wellness Living Learning Community (LLC) is a collaboration between the Wellness Resource Center and University Housing and Residential Life.

It is an immersive experience designed to prepare First-Year students to thrive at Temple University. Specialized programming and a First Year Seminar provide students space to explore holistic wellness and their ability to flourish in college.

Located in Morgan North

Students in Thrive: Wellness LLC will engage in enlightening conversations through the lenses of the eight dimensions of wellness and social justice. Students who choose to be a part of this community desire to place holistic wellness at the center of their college experience. Students will learn about mental well-being, stress management, how to cultivate joyful relationships, and much more.

LLC students are encouraged to stay connected to the Wellness Resource Center by becoming a HEART Peer Educator, a student leader who promotes well-being, cultivates community, and is a change agent on campus. Our goal is to promote a variety of intentional learning experiences that go beyond the classroom – where students can explore practical and relevant life skills.
