The Dammon Dean's Scholars Learning Community Offers a year-long experience for CLA majors in the Honors College. Dean's Scholars share interests, classes, goals, and will share the experience of working on an original research project with a Liberal Arts faculty member in a spring semester research seminar. By participating in this Learning Community, you will help create a vibrant intellectual and social environment that will support you and enrich your first-year experience through learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
