All first-year liberal arts students at Purchase College participate in smaller intellectual communities designed to appeal to students’ different academic interests and learning styles. Students may choose from three different types of intellectual communities: Residential Learning Communities, Transfer Learning Communities, or First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs).
Students in Residential Learning Communities take a minimum of two courses together and live together in a freshman residence hall. The Learning Communities are coordinated by a faculty director who lives on campus and is therefore available for formal and informal advising, social and academic events and access all year.
So choose your Learning Community now! Places are limited.
