NOTE:  Effective 2018, this learning community has merged with the Creativity and Culture learning community.

You know what it takes to be competitive: You were accepted into the Computer Graphics Technology program at Purdue. Now, you have an opportunity to excel and form relationships with others in your field of study. Through the CGT Learning Community, you will participate in co-curricular activities related to the computer graphics technology field. This Learning Community will help you make friends, connect with faculty, and form study groups that will help you realize your goals through your undergraduate years and beyond.
