Not a concentration program


Created in 1962 as the "Pilot Program," the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program is the oldest of the living-learning programs at the University of Michigan. Centered in the Alice Crocker Lloyd Residence Hall, the Program offers entering students a collegial, interdisciplinary, academic environment in which they can enjoy the personal and intellectual advantages of a small group setting while they explore the resources of the larger University. A number of LS&A courses are taught in Alice Lloyd, usually by instructors who themselves live in the residence hall. Sound academic counseling and a strong range of co-curricular activities are also offered.

In addition, the Program offers reserved spaces in sections of LS&A introductory and sophomore-level courses taught elsewhere on campus; innovative mini-courses taught in Alice Lloyd; and opportunities for independent study. A one-credit theme course called "The U and You" is taught in the days just before fall term opens, and serves as the entering student's introduction to academic life at the University of Michigan.

As part of the Residence Education program in Alice Lloyd Hall, the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program has access to numerous non-academic activities, including films, field trips, entertainment, ethnic awareness programs, and social programs. Within LHSP, a leadership track for a smaller number of sophomores also exists.

The Program's writing course for entering students, LHSP 165, meets the LS&A Introductory Composition Requirement for first-year students. About ten sections of LHSP 165 are offered in fall term and a number are offered in winter term as well. This course, while emphasizing writing, focuses on a variety of diverse topics and themes drawn from the various disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Elective courses offered through LHSP range from mini-courses to seminars. All LHSP courses are small, and active participation by students is encouraged.

Approximately 350 first-year students are admitted to the Program each year, more than 60% from out-of-state. Inquiries should be addressed to the Director, Lloyd Hall Scholars Program, 100 South Observatory, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-2025.
