First Year Learning Communities
New students have the opportunity to enroll in various first year experiences. First Year Learning Communities are valuable first year experience courses. Students taking FYLCs are enrolled in "Gateway to College Learning" (the hub course) and one or more common courses, such as: Math, Chemistry, Biology, and Journalism. This allows for greater integration of the common course material, natural study groups, and greater collaborative learning. Students in FYLCs report greater success in the common courses than those students enrolled in the same common courses who do not take an FYLC or other first year experience course.
