Learning Communities


Join an LC and connect with faculty and students who share your passions!

Are you looking to connect with students, faculty, and staff who are passionate about the same things you are? Learning Communities give students the opportunity to build unique communities based on shared areas of interest.
Students in each Learning Community live together in a residential community and enjoy taking a couple classes together. They connect their residential experiences with their academic experiences through programs and activities planned specifically for their community by committees of student members and by their faculty.
Students who participate in Learning Communities report feeling a greater sense of community on-campus, make friends with similar interests that last a life-time, create important connections with faculty, develop more holistically as students, and achieve higher GPAs—plus they have a ton of fun together!
