What is a Learning Community

Learning Communities are an opportunity for you to Live, Learn, Connect and Succeed with others like you. You are introduced to different resources and participate in events created for your community.

Learning Communities for First Year Students

You Get One "First Year" You're only a first-year student once so make the most of it! First-Year Learning Communities are designed to help you "find your people" early in your first year.

Learning Communities for Upper-Class Students

Learning Communities are for more than just first year students. Upper-class Learning Communities provide you with academic and social support that leads to success!
