First Year Experience

What is a Learning Community?

Advantages of Joining a Freshman Learning Community: 

  • Exploring your academic and career options
  • Developing leadership skills
  • Organizing activities and leading committees within the Learning Community
  • Connecting with a faculty or staff member in your area of interest
  • Finding your passion in life
  • Off campus experiences related to your Learning Community theme
  • Building friendships that will last a lifetime

To promote your success in the Learning Community, you will be required to:

  • Live in the residence hall assigned to your Learning Community 
  • Live with a roommate who is also in a community in your residence hall
  • Take the courses selected for you by the Learning Community Office

* The LC office will pre-enroll students in the classes taken with their Learning Community. In order to remain a member of your Learning Community, you MUST stay enrolled in the one credit course, New Student Seminar, with your Learning Community Coordinator.
