Learning Communities – QUAESTIO

quaestioThe 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 liberalarts@duq.edu

Here’s what other Quaestio students have said:

“The availability of my professors has been the most helpful as they have given me the due amount of attention needed to understand concepts that are taught in class.”

“All the classes are interconnected.  One idea from a class can work with another class.  I like that the classes make the world come into perspective.  They make me think and want to ask questions about my life and the world.”

“I always enjoy our conversations before our classes.”

“You have the same classes with a majority of the same people, thus making it easy to get help and study with your peers.  Being around the same people all the time really helped me bond and make friends a lot easier.”
