The Business and Economics LLC is intended to assist students interested in business and economics with their transition to college. Faculty, Peer Advisors, and Resident Advisors will offer programs on the LLC floor in which students may meet Business and Economics faculty and interact with them in a setting outside the classroom. *Students accepted to the Business and Economics LLC will be pre-registered for the business and economics section of University 100 (UNIV 100), a one-credit, one-semester freshman transition course.
In these sections of English 101, LLC students will study the history of business and technology and write on subjects of professional interest. Students will read and write about Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse and the beginnings of General Electric, learn about the development of the first personal computers at Xerox Parc, and watch several films on the lives of important inventors and entrepreneurs. ENGH 101 is a required 1st year writing course. Unless the incoming freshman has AP or IB credit in English the undergraduate will have to take the course during their first year. In the LLC sections of ENGH 101, tutors will help students with their papers; the course will cover subjects of special interest to to majors or prospective majors in Business and Economics.
