"Being in a Learning Community has helped me make TONS of new friends and has made class a lot less daunting. Having classes with your neighbors not only strengthens friendships, but also allows for group study and higher scores." —Anukool, Wellness LC

The Wellness Learning Community offers students the opportunity to engage in the Jesuit tradition of Cura Personalis (care for the whole person). As a member of the Wellness LC, you will develop an understanding of mind, body, and spirit through exploration of cultural, emotional, environmental, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational wellness.

Course Descriptions

PHIL 130 You are a person. So is the person sitting next to you (or in the next room). But what exactly are persons? What can persons know about the world around them, and why do they matter? Moreover, once we have figured out what persons are, how can we figure out what persons should do?  This course uses philosophical methods, as well as historical and contemporary philosophers, to map a variety of ways of approaching and answering questions about persons. In conjunction with the Wellness Learning Community, this section of Philosophical and Persons also places a special emphasis on how our understanding of ourselves as persons may affect the way we understand human well-being.  CORE Philosophical Knowledge Tier I
UCWR 110 instructs students in the conventions of academic writing. Students will develop flexible strategies for generating, revising, editing their writing and will receive instruction in how to write clear, error free prose. This section will focus on how critical thinking can enhance our own sense of a healthy and fulfilled self as well as our capacity to accept and support others. CORE Writing Seminar
