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.
As always, if you have any questions about the communities email firstname.lastname@example.org

What Narratio students have said:
“As a commuter, it was helpful being in a learning community to make new friends and go to the helpful professors for any questions.”
“Having the same people in half your classes really helped in getting to know people and with group studying. Themes tied together across the board as well.”
“The most helpful aspect of the learning community is being in class with the same group of kids. It creates connections for homework help and just all-around making friends.”
