The Learning Communities (LC's) are designed to provide a supportive learning opportunity open to freshmen students who declare any major in the College of Science and Mathematics. The primary focus of these LC's is helping students succeed academically in the critical first year of college.

November 2021: Living Learning Communities help promote collegiality

November 2020: Living-Learning Communities provide students with learning, social opportunities during pandemic

Why should I participate?

One of the many benefits to participating in the LC is that you will be attending some classes with other students who have declared a major similar to yours. You will also have the opportunity to connect with students, faculty, and staff who all have an interest in helping you succeed.
