While I cringe at the word “dorm,” (I suppose “residence hall” isn’t as catchy or easy to say), A&M’s new living and learning community is quite focused for business students, beginning their first year. While there are pros and cons of such focused living and learning communities, I am inclined to say that all residence halls should be considered “living and learning” communities, as learning is not limited to the classroom; students are continually learning and developing (emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and YES, intellectually) through student activities, chapel, conversations with their roommates, etc, etc.
