Students receiving the Brownsville Scholarship participating in the ACREW learning community are required to live with other freshmen in one of the halls reserved for the LAUNCH Constellation living-learning program. You want to be in the hall with the other learning community students – not only for hall-based activities and opportunities that require you to be a resident but also for easy creation of study groups and friendships.
A Learning Communities Mentor Advisory Council works with the hall staff to provide programs throughout the year.
Join us among the stars! Constellation connects students from multiple learning communities in the common pursuit of being empowered successful lifelong learners.
Constellation members have the opportunity to attend Constellation Events throughout the year to earn points toward Aggie swag and Constellation prizes. Spaces are limited. This means that no matter which LAUNCH learning community your friend is in, you can both meet your LC requirement to live on campus AND
share your hall experience.
To make this easier for you, all non-cadet Brownsville Scholars students will be placed into a Constellation hall space
by staff (unless they opt out before
May 1*). During early May, students get notified of their Constellation placement and receive instructions to select a roommate and room or opt-out of these reserved spaces. To take advantage of this privilege, you must complete your on-campus housing application through the portal
. Indicate your interest in being in a Living-Learning Program during that process and select Constellation LLP. All Living-learning Program students receive their housing assignments before the general student population.
Cadets should complete the LC cadet registration
to indicate their intention to live with the Corps instead of in Constellation.
*To opt-out before May 1 complete the Constellation Opt-Out Request form
. Students who are placed in Constellation will be able to opt out during their placement review process.
After May 1, opting out can only be done through the housing portal during room assignments. Opting out will send your on-campus housing placement back into the priority list based on your original application date.
