"I loved the professors. They really go out of their way to help!"
A Learning Community is a group of students who take two subjects together (like Art and English, or History and Sociology) in a small class setting.
In a Learning Community, students have an opportunity to explore the connections between two subjects with their professors, using the knowledge and skills they acquire in one course to succeed in the other course of the Learning Community.
For example, in Principles of Management, students may study current globalization trends and in their English 101 class, they may write an essay on its effects. Similarly, in Art Appreciation, students might be interested in a particular period of painting or style of sculpture, and then write an essay in English 101 discussing their attraction to it.
Studies have shown that students in learning communities experience higher rates of academic success, report an easier transition to college after having participated in them, and enjoy working with Peer Mentors who help them get the most out of their first semester in college.
Best of all, there is no additional cost to join!
"The other students were helpful, supportive, and friendly.
When you join a Learning Community you must register for the two courses of that Learning Community. If you drop one class, you will be dropped from both.
