Exploring Helping Careers Learning Community

If you are interested in helping others, this learning community is a great fit for you! In this community, you will be able to create meaningful bonds with other people that are interested in the same areas as you. You will be exposed to many different majors within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and have the opportunity to engage with faculty from the college. With intentional advising, faculty will help you stay on track for graduation.

Where you'll live

We encourage you to live on campus with others in your Learning Community because that's where much of your networking takes place, but it is not required.

You can choose to live:

  • In designated Learning Community housing
    • Renovated double rooms located in Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I Halls.  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor.
    • You can choose to have another Learning Community student assigned as your roommate, or you may choose your own.
  • Other on-campus housing
    • It will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
  • Off-campus
