The time is coming for all incoming freshmen to make the decision about their learning communities. This Saturday, at the Open House, everyone will be able to ask questions at a panel concerning the learning communities.
In anticipation of that, we will be highlighting different learning communities this week with basic information and some quotes from past students of that community.
As always, if you have any questions about the communities email firstname.lastname@example.org

Here’s what past Civitas students have had to say:
“The fact that we have 3 or 4 classes with the same people is great. It’s helpful to have study groups of people you know well.”
“It makes studying much easier. Studying no longer is boring; the learning community allows you to get feedback from other students. It helps create study groups easily. It also helps you become acquainted fast with a group of friends.”
