USF 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog - Page 16
A Learning Community is a group of students who enroll in the same classes for a semester, a year, or sometimes longer, and who work together with their faculty to develop their own thinking and learning skills. Specifically designed for beginning freshman, the Learning communities at the main campus in Tampa allow students to meet many of the General Education requirements – those courses all students are required to take their first 2 years in college – in a more focused way than courses selected independently of one another.
Several distinct Learning Communities are available each year, focusing on different themes, with one Learning Community reserved for students who wish to live on campus in the same residence hall. If you would like a small, liberal arts college experience within a large university, if you would enjoy working closely with other students and faculty; if you are qualified to enroll in freshman English (min. SAT verbal 440 or EACT English 17); please consider including Learning Communities in your USF experience. Spaces in the communities are limited. Interested students may contact Kim Williams, Learning Community Advisor at (813) 974-6968, email: Williams@chuma1.cas.usf.edu, or visit our Web site at http://web.usf.edu/~lc.
