• Music Living-Learning Community at Cawthon Hall

A life in music . . . music for a lifetime . . .

What is the Living-Learning Community?

At Florida State, a Living–Learning Community (LLC) is a small group of students who live together, share an interest, and take one or two of their classes together — usually in a small classroom inside their residence hall. Designed primarily for first-year students, an LLC is a great place to plug into a supportive network of students and distinguished faculty as soon as you arrive at FSU.

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 frig 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.
