Honors Pathway Program

The Pavlis Living and Learning Community

If you're an incoming Michigan Tech student and you're interested in joining the Pavlis Honors College, consider living in the Pavlis Living and Learning Community (LLC)! You'll have just enough in common with the other residents to make connections—you're all interested in the Honors College and want to get the most out of your time at Michigan Tech—while living in a diverse community of majors, backgrounds, and experiences.

Build Relationships

  • You'll have your own sections of HON1150: Creating Your Path. In this course, you'll learn life design methods to create a path to help you achieve your personal educational, career, and life goals. 
  • While the hall is for first-year students, we'll introduce you to students who have already lived in the LLC, are in the Honors Pathways Program, and want to help you make your stay (and Michigan Tech as a whole) as rewarding as possible. If you have a question about your classes, are feeling homesick, or need help figuring out the washing machines, you'll have a friendly face and a voice of experience. 
  • You'll make connections throughout the Michigan Tech community and beyond with (optional!) activities throughout the year for you to get to know your hallmates, other Pavlis students, staff, faculty, and industry partners. From casual movie nights in the hall to professional networking sessions to the annual Pavlis chili cook-off, there's something for everyone. 


The Pavlis LLC is on the ground floor of Wadsworth Hall and offers traditional (two-person) and suite-style (two-person with attached bathroom) rooms.

An award-winning hall

Just two months into its first year, the Pavlis LLC won the September 2019 Best Residential Community, regional level award from the Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (GLACURH). The nomination letter from Michigan Tech Residence Education and Housing Services encapsulated so much about what makes our community special:
