Develop New Friendships

Have you ever met someone in class who you thought was interesting but you never really had the time to get to know more about them because of a busy schedule?

Come join the fun as we study together in a socially supportive environment. We will learn how to communicate effectively and get to understand different people groups, as well as our own in today's society.

Took a Learning Community in SOC120 "Marriage and Family" combined with SPC126 "Interpersonal and Small Group Communication"

Why do I like Learning Communities?

Because I got a better understanding of the principles we were learning. Getting two different perspectives helped me understand communication and how it relates to everything in our lives. Within our learning community we had a lot of fun and got into the classes more than any other of the classes I have taken.

Why do I like Learning Communities?

I like learning Communities because they give you an opportunity to become good friends with the people in your class. You get more time to socialize and interact with your classmates, which makes things a lot more fun. It's also great to see how two subjects relate to each other. Interdisciplinary learning really allows you to make connections from one subject to another, which is an important skill.

Why do I like Learning Communities?

I LOVE Learning Communities! Because you get more from both classes and draw conclusions about the subjects you would not normally draw yourself. This form of learning allows you to partake in thought provoking discussions with two different professors and get their expert opinions in their area of expertise. It's more of a personal experience and you make friends for life.
