Then consider these options …
Residential Learning Communities (LCs)
These communities comprise selected freshmen and faculty-in-residence who share academic interests and want to benefit socially and academically by living and learning together—whether it means participating in field trips or sharing meals. The 2014–15 communities will revolve around these themes:
– Psychology in Everyday Life
– WAKE UP! Cultural Rebellion from Buddhism to the Present
– Spirityality and Society
Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs)
Like our learning communities, FIGS are designed around a specific academic interest, but students are not required to live together on campus—and that makes this ideal for commuter students. FIGs are offered in almost every academic area. Based on a student’s academic interest, he or she will choose a FIG during summer advising and registration.
