Constellation


LAUNCH Constellation Living-Learning Program connects learning community students within the LAUNCH housing district to enhance the students' LC experience. Students must be participating in ACREW, Brownsville Scholars, Century Scholars, FOCUS, Greater Texas Foundation Aggie Scholars or Ignite to live in Constellation amongst the stars!
Constellation LLP offers first-year students an intentional and achievable path to enhancing their individual growth as empowered lifelong learners. Each time a student participates in a Constellation Event, they can earn a star (or stars) towards an optional  Star Chart that documents their growth and On Course trajectory through  a combination of participation and reflection throughout the academic year.
For 2018-2019, Constellation will be in Clements and Haas halls.

Students must complete an application for on-campus housing and should do so as soon as possible. Because scholarship housing requirements differ, each student needs to follow the process indicated for their learning community.
Update on Constellation LLP Room Assignments: All Constellation LLP students should receive their initial room assignments for the LLP by end of business on May 18 via an email notification from the Housing Assignments Office to the student's TAMU email account. The assignment will be viewable in the myHousing Portal (oncampusaggies.tamu.edu) beginning May 23. Constellation LLP students are encouraged to indicate their learning community and Constellation LLP in their profile within the Roommates Selector to make it easier to find one another. As outlined by the notification email, students will be able to move within the LLP for a brief period of time after May 23. During this time, students may get to know their assigned roommate or others through the Roommates Selector. Please note: Instructions for choosing someone other than the assigned roommate will be included in the notification.

Questions regarding the Roommates Selector feature should be directed to the Housing Assignments Office (housing@tamu.edu or 979.845.4744).

Students who decide to drop their LLP from this point may be negatively affected. If a student decides to drop, Residence Life will revoke the room assignment and place the student into a time slot for room selection based on their contract completion date. Students may miss the timeslot of students with similar contract completion dates. To request a drop, students must send a drop request to academics@housing.tamu.edu for processing. This process may take up to a week to be completed.
Students receiving the Regents’ 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 students in ACREW 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.
