Learning Communities

Learning Communities provide students with the opportunity to develop friendships and experience learning as a dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives during their transition to campus life.  A learning community is a set of linked courses that place students with similar interests together in two or three courses.  Please see the exciting list of Learning Community Options below to find the theme that most interests you - then make your choices in CatWalk!
