A learning community is a group of students with similar interests who take classes together and share academic and social experiences designed to enhance the first-year experience. While the program runs through the first academic year, the benefits you’ll receive can last throughout all your college years and beyond.
Students who participate in learning communities, studies show, are more likely to have higher grade-point averages, are less likely to be on academic probation and are more likely to graduate on time than their peers. Plus, students say, learning communities make their years in college much more enjoyable and profitable.
The SUCCESS Learning Community also offers access to a broad range of resources and opportunities to prepare members for the job market. Tutors, strong relationships with advisors and faculty, and academic opportunities are only a few of the benefits of joining SUCCESS!
