Founded in 1972, Collins is a student-led community with an emphasis on leadership, sustainability, the arts, and humanities. We foster intellectual exploration, encourage creative expression, and provide leadership opportunities. Collins is a place where you can be yourself, make friends, and have fun!
Renovated buildings + innovative programs
Collins LLC is back in our historic – now freshly updated! – buildings on 10th St. and Woodlawn Avenue for Fall 2022. Our campus home has been refurbished inside to feature air conditioning, redesigned interior spaces that maintain our traditional Collins vibe, exciting programming spaces, an elevator for increased accessibility, and more.
We’re excited to welcome our first class of students into ACT Humanities at Collins LLC. Based on a foundation of “Action + Community + Thought,” this new program encourages students to explore community change, social justice, and professional development experiences through humanities-focused programming.
Our growing SustainCollins program, dedicated to sustainability and the environment, offers student members opportunities to deep-dive into environmental topics, put passion into action by tackling sustainability issues, and develop professional skills that will serve them as they pursue engaged civic lives.
A community of go-getters + game-changers
We are located at one of the most convenient and beautiful spots on campus. Our classic Gothic limestone buildings house an array of arts facilities, on-site dining options, and comfortable study spaces. Our students teach classes, participate in student groups, organize events, volunteer in the community, take part in philanthropy projects, and more. These meaningful experiences help develop translatable skills that are relevant to a variety of career paths.
