Opus Business Living Learning Community

The Opus Business living learning community connects students interested in any concentration within the Opus College of Business. While living in Ireland Hall, students will build relationships with fellow business students. Through out of classroom experiences, students will explore the fundamentals of business, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

What Opus Business LLC students said about their experience:

"My LLC community values each other and cares about everyone's opinions. Everyone respects each other and cares about each other. Everyone is willing to help out or lend a hand whenever needed, and everyone is very approachable. "

"I'm feeling like I've gained more confidence in business in general. I know more about classes I should take and changed my mindset and the way that I used to look at that environment."

"The opportunity to connect with other students who are interested in business. I believe that building relationships with my fellow business students is important, and I appreciate the focus on experiential learning and the chance to apply business concepts in a hands-on way. As a member of this community, I am committed to fostering a collaborative and engaging environment where I can learn and grow alongside my peers."
