Learning Communities

Learning communities provide an opportunity for students to connect with students of similar interests. Most are meant to help freshmen transition to college. Some programs are major or program specific while others are not. Some programs have students housed in the same residence hall. Each community has its own peer mentors. Some learning communities have specific class requirements.
