Learning Communities

Class on Carnegie steps

Learning communities allow you to live and take classes with a group of students who all are joined by a common interest or academic major. Participation in a learning community allows you to develop skills and attitudes that support academic achievement, improved quality of thinking and communications, a  better understanding of yourself and others, and a greater ability to balance your academic and social lives.
