Living Learning Community

Learning about sustainability is strengthened when you live sustainably. Apply to live in our Living-Learning Community below!

Green GaelsSuccessful living communities are built around a sense of shared purpose that is grounded in residential, academic and co-curricular experience.  The noble common purpose of the Claeys South Green Living Learning Community is to further Saint Mary’s College’s commitment to Green Living and Sustainability. 

If you wish to reside within this community during the 2017-2018 school year, please complete the questionnaire by March, 31st. 

Each member of the community will take a 0.25 credit course on learning how to manage sustainable change. A sample syllabus can be found below.  


In 2013-14, Sophomore students dedicated to the green lifestyle had their own housing Claeys South, adjacent to the Legacy Garden. There students engaged in new green initatives for campus.
