Cooper Living and Learning Center

The Cooper Living and Learning Center is a residence hall located at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's Pioneer Farm, seven miles from the main campus.  The Cooper LLC is home to the Agricultural Living Learning Community facilitated by the School of Agriculture, in collaboration with staff from the Department of Residence Life.  The Cooper Agriculture Living and Learning Community is for Junior and Senior students, consideration also given to Sophomore standing students, who are majoring or minoring with the School of Agriculture.  Students choosing to select Cooper Living and Learning Center as a housing option are contracting with the Department of Residence Life for the academic year. This LLC specializes in programming to prepare you for life beyond college in your agricultural career.  Activities may include: employer visits, faculty visits, resume and interviewing workshops, etc.  If you are not selected to participate by the School of Agriculture, via the interview process, and you complete this housing contract, you will be required to reside in another on-campus residence hall space.  Contact Dr. Jodi McDermott at 608.342.1366.
