Business Learning Community

If you’re interested in working in the business field but haven’t narrowed to a specific profession or want to learn about multiple options, this learning community is for you. This learning community is designed to help students with a general interest in business to clarify their academic and professional goals. You’ll develop strong connections to faculty and staff in the College of Business who will guide you through the wide variety of careers. The courses offered fulfill requirements for business majors and may also meet University General Education requirements.

Where you'll live

We encourage you to live on campus with others in your Learning Community because that's where much of your networking and informal learning takes place. However, we understand that is not ideal for all students.

If you choose the Learning Community housing, you will be assigned to renovated double room (Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I).  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor. Learning Community students are housed with other students in the same learning community.

If you do not choose the learning community housing and plan to live on campus, it will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
