There's strength in numbers. Take 2-4 classes together with the same group of students and succeed.
Learning Communities (LCs) are groups of 20 to 25 students who take two to four classes together during their first semester focusing on a specific theme, academic major or interest.
"This experience really helped me understand the different subject areas. The most rewarding thing was I learned to take ownership of my learning. It is worthy mentioning that I made friends through my first year learning community, which has been so helpful throughout my studies." - Ernest Williams
LEARNING COMMUNITY FACT: 81% of students who participate in a learning community remain after their first year which is significantly higher than students who did not participate in a learning community.
