The Pre-Professional Sciences learning community is here to help! The learning community will offer you support in your course work by having group study session throughout the week with others in your classes. You will also have the opportunity to have your questions answered through your interaction with faculty from these departments. The learning community is here to help guide you in the process of pursuing these demanding programs.

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
