Who we are
In partnership with Campus Recreation and Wellness, the Wellness Living Learning Community (WLLC) offers students the opportunity to be an active participant in their education through the residential living experience. Students will incorporate health and wellness education learned in the classroom into their lifestyles. The WLLC fits the University’s commitment to improve the health and well-being of students by providing them with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a lifestyle of health and wellness through educational programming developed around the 8 Dimensions of Wellness model. It also gives students an opportunity to apply what they have learned by completing a service learning project within the community. As East Carolina University strives to become a Leadership University, the WLLC will help achieve this goal by developing leaders in health and wellness. These leaders in health and wellness will not only impact fellow East Carolina students, but the Greenville community as well.

One of the many benefits to participating in the WLLC is that you will have a unique opportunity to connect with students, faculty and staff who all have an interest in health and wellness. In addition, you will get academic credit for the classes you will take as part of this community.
Who can participate in the WLLC?
All incoming freshmen are welcome to apply. You do not need to be in a health-related major.
