This learning community is designed for freshmen exploring teaching as a possible major.

Students take Core classes that include Education and Teaching as a theme. Students live together in Knilans Hall and attend some classes as a group to be able to complete group projects and study together. Volunteer activities include early teaching experiences and leadership training. Students receive priority registration in some hard to get classes needed for the education major.
