Are you a new, incoming Pathway to Purdue Agriculture student?  If yes, you are automatically registered as a member of the Ag Pathway Learning Community!

This Learning Community ties together classroom learning with out-of-class experiences while being supported by your faculty.  As a new Ag Pathway student, you are enrolled in the AGR 10700: Pathway to Purdue course (1 credit hour) during your first fall semester at Purdue.  In addition, all Ag Pathway students who choose to live in the residence halls will be placed in the Grant/Steely UR Boiler Apartments.  Living on the Purdue campus gives you additional opportunities to form study groups, interact with faculty where you live, and have additional resources in faculty fellows as well as a resident assistant.  Regardless of your living situation (whether on or off campus), all students in the Ag Pathway Learning Community participate in classes together, get to know one another, learn about resources available to you at Purdue University and Ivy Tech Community College, and attend some exciting events!

Developing community amongst the Pathway to Purdue Agriculture students is crucial to your ultimate success as you plan your transfer to become a full-time, degree-seeking student in Purdue’s College of Agriculture.  We look forward to the journey together!
