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 previous Ratio students said:
“I really liked the learning community. I was extremely hesitant at first because I thought it was going to be lame, but it definitely made the transition into college much easier, and I am grateful I am a liberal arts major so I could have this experience.”
“I really enjoy applying our topics in fun ways, like watching movies together and having food. I also like learning about issues through our service projects.”
“I had a wonderful experience in my learning community and I think they are a fabulous idea. I truly enjoyed each of the classes, especially the professors and classmates.”
