Themed Housing: LEAPs
First-year students are encouraged to participate in a LEAP (Leopards Engaging Among Peers). These thematic living learning communities provide the opportunity to a participate in a shared living and programming experience. The goal of these communities is to assist first-year students in finding a sense of belonging on campus and support their personal, academic, and professional growth. Currently, Housing and Residential Education offers LEAPs with a focus on Women @ WIT, Sports Leadership, Wellness, and Honors.
