The Psychology Learning Community is designed to bring a small group Psychology and Brain and Behavioral Sciences majors together for their first semester.  The Learning Community’s focus is to provide an environment that allows you to have hands-on experience with the various areas of psychology while simultaneously developing friendships with like-minded peers.  Throughout the fall you will meet with faculty in all areas of psychology, attend tours of various cultural centers, visit surrounding area attractions (including Wolf Park and McCord’s Candy), receive training from the Center for Advocacy and Response, and also receive information about various campus resources.  Further, the connections you develop with your peers and mentors that will further your goals here at Purdue and beyond.
