"Joining a learning community is an experience of a lifetime. It takes a gigantic campus and brings it down to a familiar level, making the transition to college easy and smooth, all the while providing opportunities throughout campus to enhance your college career and make it a lively and fun experience. Not only will you walk away with an immense amount of knowledge that is hard to grasp outside of a Learning Community, but the friends you make while involved can be amazing."
