What is involved? Students in learning communities are co-registered to take several classes together in the Fall and Spring semesters of their freshman year. These classes include required courses in the general studies curriculum. Additionally, support services and enhanced learning opportunities will be coordinated for students to promote integration of knowledge, skill development, and student success. What social activities are planned? Multiple outside-of-class activities will be offered every semester that enable students to socialize with others, explore their interests, and build skills in areas such as leadership, career decision making, and time and financial management. What if I want to be involved in other activities on campus? Campus involvement is encouraged! The learning community is a great place to get to know others and to be known by your peers; however, it is important to participate in the full array of opportunities at TROY. These include student organizations, residence halls, Greek Life, intramurals, and much more. Who is eligible to participate? To be eligible, a student must be an incoming first-year student planning to be enrolled fulltime for the 2014 – 2015 academic year. Additionally, students must fit criteria specific to the learning communities they select. How do I join in? Due to the unique nature of learning communities and the limited number of spots available, students must apply to join each learning community. This application is separate from the university admissions application and any other university program. Applications are available at IMPACT (new student summer orientation). Students with questions, should contact Jonathan Cellon – Coordinator of Student Learning Initiatives at (334) 808-6349 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Located in 122 Eldridge Hall.
