Discovery Learning Floor Community
The Discovery Learning Floor Community serves entering freshman who have chosen one of the smartest selections for a major, the UNDECIDED MAJOR. This learning community is specifically designed for new Eastern Illinois University students that have yet to determine their field of study, regardless of whether the student is unsure of a field or because the student wants to raise their career awareness before focusing on a specific field. In the Discovery Learning Community students guided by EIU Career Services, Academic Advising, and University Housing and Dining learn about and experience many career options, especially ones that are less well known but highly recruited. If you are looking for a results-oriented program that is specifically designed to help students make career and major choices that fit their budgets, values, and aspirations, then this is the program for you! The Discovery Learning Community is housed in Taylor Hall on 1st floor South Tower for males and 3rd floor South Tower for females. This program allows undecided students to live with other undecided students that will participate in professional development programs and experiential learning opportunities that result in an academic plan that best suits the student.
Quiet Lifestyle Floor Community
Quiet Lifestyle Floor Communities (QLFC) are residence hall floors that have extended quiet hours (beyond the traditional courtesy hours of other communities) to promote an academically conducive environment of study through stricter enforcement of noise policy violations. QLFC at EIU restrict noise levels that can be heard more than one door away from a resident’s room at all times during the day except during relief hours. Relief hours restricts noise levels that can be heard more than three doors away with special note that courtesy hours are always in effect which means if a neighbor asks for the noise level to be adjusted at any time during the week, residents must comply. Relief hours for QLFC are as follows: Sunday-Thursday 4-7pm and on Friday and Saturday 4-10pm. During final exam weeks the entire campus has intensive study hours that start at 12:01am on Sunday and goes until the buildings close for the semester at 6pm on Friday. Relief hours during this time for all floors across campus are 12-1pm, 5-6pm, and 10-10:30pm each day.
