Are you a Dietetics major and want to live with others in the same major?  Would you like to connect with other students who are also interested in the field of nutrition and dietetics? In this learning community you will participate in a shared classroom through NUTR 106, meet professionals engaged in different specialties within the field of dietetics, and learn how the food we grow and consume impacts the environment, our health and well-being. Plus, you will get to know your peers, faculty, and staff through social events throughout the academic year.  

The residential program is for Dietetics majors who wish to live with the learning community.  


  • First-time beginning students in the College of Health and Human Sciences with a major in Nutrition and Dietetics or Nutrition and Dietetics/Nutrition, Fitness & Health

Residential Component

  • Optional. The location of learning community housing will be determined based on the incoming size and needs of the learning community.
