Community-to-Classroom (C2C)

Classmates in an education class

Bluffton's Community-to-Classroom (C2C) Living-Learning Community is an exciting new opportunity for residential living! This community is for first-year students who are passionate about teaching and learning, and who wish to nurture that passion in an academically-centered community. Members live together in Neufeld Hall, participate in community activities and are enrolled together in three classes (EDU 200, EDU 205, EDU 220). Benefits include:

  • Building strong and meaningful relationships with peers and faculty within the education major
  • Integrating classroom learning and co-curricular experiences
  • Working collaboratively to create a cohesive community which explores ideas and questions relating to the field of education
  • Gaining an automatic network of friends with similar goals
  • Getting advice and support from a resident advisor, hall chaplain, and several other mentors - all education students who also live on your floor
  • Study sessions to support academic success and learning
  • Fireside chats with faculty, the president and community educators
  • Field trips to select education locations
  • Social and educational programs designed to help you gain a deeper understanding of the education field

This themed community is open to first-year students who are declared education majors. Participation in the C2C Living-Learning Community is contingent upon your application and available space. All participants granted membership will be assigned rooms in Neufeld Hall, a hall traditionally not available to first-year students. Living in Neufeld Hall incurs an air conditioning fee of $100 per semester.

To be considered for this Living-Learning Community, please read and submit both the application and guideline agreement.
