Student Engagement and Success
What is a Living/Learning Community?
Designed to encourage academic success, a Living/Learning Community is composed of a group of freshmen placed in the same residence hall who take the same three courses together as a group. These courses, which include a Freshman Year Experience course, are linked together around a common research theme, which creates a more engaging, realistic and exciting atmosphere. In addition, there are wonderful sources of support for the Learning Community, such as Learning Coaches, On-Site Tutors, and study areas designed with the latest technology. Being involved in a residential community where everyone is taking the same main courses together provides participants with tremendous peer-support in a very challenging college atmosphere. The combination of living together and learning together in the midst of a strong academic support system provides the best possible chance of academic and career success.
