Where lifestyle and academics unite
As a William O. Douglas Honors College (DHC) student residing in the Living/Learning Community (LLC), you have the opportunity to live next door or down the hall from your Honors College peers. The DHC LLC helps students make the transition to CWU a smoother one by providing support through student programming and peer mentorship. The DHC LLC is the only living/learning community where students receive the benefit of residential peer mentoring.
DHC LLC Peer Mentor Program

Up to five peer mentors are chosen each year to support DHC students living in Barto Hall. Peer mentors work with the DHC faculty and staff to build a vibrant academic and residential community of scholars.
