Communication and Exploration

The Communication and Exploration Living Learning Community (CEC) helps first-year students prioritize academic success, meet friends, find adventure in Boise, and adjust to college life. Weekly classes facilitated by a live-in faculty member promote hands-on engagement and learning.

Why Should You Apply

CEC is for students with diverse interests who want to explore all that the campus and community offers – activities, events, resources, and opportunities.  In class, students participate with peers in learning about communication in a variety of contexts, finding the power of storytelling in movies, books, music, and media, and within themselves.

Community Events

Off-campus outings offer options for all, like grabbing a bagel downtown, picking your favorite pumpkin at a local patch, or snowshoeing at Bogus Basin. Students have opportunities to volunteer with others to make blankets for cats and dogs at our local shelter or raise funds for hospitalized children. Exploring a wide variety of activities allows students to try new things and find what most interests them.

Curriculum

CEC is all about looking at options – students play an active role in class to develop a sense of belonging, make meaningful connections, collaborate with others, and study communication’s impact on their lives. The course helps build confidence in sharing ideas and creating compelling narrative so that students feel empowered to navigate their own paths through college and life.
