Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (AHSS) Community
The Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Community is comprised of first-year students within this college* living together and taking the same section of University 189.** Students will also have weekly interaction with faculty on their floor presenting on a variety of topics. From photojournalism to career development, students will be exposed to a variety of opportunities to enhance their academic work and to provide career options upon graduation. The Arts, Humanities, and Social Science community is located on floors 4 and 5 of Thompson Hall.
