Living-Learning Community

What is the Music Living-Learning Community?

We started with historic Cawthon Hall…

a beautiful campus landmark, just a two-minute walk from the College of Music and right across the street from the main campus library;

And made a wonderful place for living…

  • suite-style rooms connected by a semi-private bath,
  • most with views of campus or the beautiful interior courtyard,
  • added full University Housing residence-life programming, along with 
  • a large, comfortable parlor, reading and study area, 
  • a small fridge in each room, kitchens on each floor, and 
  • a palatial laundry room in the basement.

And a wonderful place for learning…

  • from award-winning faculty
  • with a liberal arts tradition and a strong University Honors Program, 
  • add in small classes in high-tech classrooms,
  • a computer/group piano classroom,
  • along with an academic advising office.

For those who love music…

  • a close-knit community of first- and second-year music majors,
  • three individual practice rooms, an ensemble practice room,
  • performance spaces with presentations by faculty and guest artists,
  • and concerts and jam sessions.
