EKU Learning Communities

Academic Learning Communities integrate the curriculum of GSD 101, Foundations of Learning, and other general education courses (such as CMS 100, ENG 101 or PSY 200). Undeclared first-year students who are pre-enrolled in Learning Communities attend two classes with the same classmates during the most popular class times, in some of the best classrooms on campus! Through Learning Communities, first-year students build confidence in their academic abilities while learning the ropes at EKU. Research shows that students who take part in a learning community earn higher grades, make friends faster, and graduate at higher and faster rates than students who don't participate.
