There are two types of Learning Communities, Clusters (consisting of three or more classes) and Pairs (consisting of two classes). Learning Communities can help you: Make connections among courses Form a community with your classmates Work closely with faculty Be more successful in your courses Be more likely to stay in school and graduate Learning Communities are strongly recommended for first-year Liberal Arts students.
