The Healthy Living Learning Community, located in Doheny Hall, is a program designed for first-year students who prefer a wellness-focused lifestyle. Students in the HLLC program are enrolled in a linked courses team taught by a Student Affairs staff member. The linked course, residential living component, and other co-curricular experiences provided for the students in the program are designed to create a fully integrated living learning experience. In addition, the HLLC shares a commitment to a lifestyle free from the presence and influence of alcohol, tobacco and drugs while emphasizing the importance of emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, financial, and social wellness.
Students in the Healthy Living Learning Community identify themselves as individuals who are eager to engage in balanced living and desire an overall lifestyle that promotes healthy choices. HLLC students will reap the rewards of individualized, small-group experiences that will benefit their overall wellness both in and out of the classroom. The HLLC support system includes Resident Advisors, a Faculty in Residence, a Resident Director, and a Resident Minister who all live in the building to foster and encourage the creation of a wellness focused community. Living in the HLLC means living with people who share similar interests about wellness and who are dedicated to being substance-free. One of the most important criteria for living in the Healthy Living Learning Community requires residents of the HLLC and their guests to not use or possess alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs and agree not to return to the area under the influence of these substances. Residents found in violation of these substance-free policies will face disciplinary action and may be removed from the Healthy Living Learning Community.

My name is Trammell. I will be the Resident Director overseeing the community development and programming that happens within the Health Living Learning Community. I’m excited to be able to partake in the challenge of pursuing an overall healthy lifestyle. My entire being revolves around balance and finding a healthy medium. Having been involved heavily throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies, I have realized the importance of having a supportive community and am excited to share my experiences.
||Sean Doherty, Resident Advisor
My name is Sean Doherty and I am a Senior Film Production Major. I am a huge fan of comedy and sports. I hope to work in one of these areas in television when I graduate. Some of the things I am involved with at LMU are Sursum Corda, CLC, and First Year Retreat. I love playing basketball and ultimate frisbee, going to the beach, and camping. This will be my first year as a Healthy Living RA. I am super excited to meet everyone and be part of of one of the best and healthiest communities on campus!
||Pamela Gonzalez, Resident Advisor
I am a third year Psychology major with an Elementary Education minor from Los Angeles, California. This will be my second year as the Resident Advisor for Healthy Living Learning Community. At LMU, I am active in Belles Service Organization, Christian Life Community (CLC), as well as Latino Student Union. Being able to spend time with family and friends is something I enjoy and keeps me balanced. I am excited about another year with the HLLC because as a college student, I have seen how easy it can be to forget to stay healthy but also the great relationships that are formed in this community.
