Learning Communities are designed to help you transition into college life and provide you with the skills you need to succeed throughout your academic career. When you arrive on campus in August you’ll want to feel at home, get to know people easily, and do well academically.
Learning Communities (LCs) are designed for exactly that. By bringing first-year students and faculty members together to form tight-knit, cohesive units, Learning Communities facilitate a smooth transition to college life and provide a few nice extras, too.
What is a Learning Community?
A Learning Community is a group of students who take a common set of courses together and participate in common experiences around their academics.
When you choose to participate in a Learning Community, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the courses’ subject matter while building relationships with faculty and fellow students inside and outside of the classroom.
Some of our Learning Communities are residentially-based, which means that participating students not only take courses in common but also live in either the same residence hall or the same residential area of campus.
Learning Communities are about living, learning, and having fun together!
