Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (AHSS) Community
The Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Community provides opportunities for first-year students within this college to connect, learn, and grow together. Students will participate in a one credit course each semester as a cohort, providing opportunities to learn from one another both inside and out of the classroom. From photojournalism to career development, students will be exposed to a wide variety of opportunities to enhance their academic work. The Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Community is currently located in our high rise complex.
"I really love that many people within this community have similar interests and goals. Having a major that falls under the categories of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences allow us to really bond with people who are similar to us." Madeline, Vocal Music Education

Students in this community must be majoring in an area within the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. List of majors is available here. If you qualify, and space is still available, you will receive an email invitation to participate. If you are interested in participating, you will need to complete the AHSS Learning Community Agreement. Please note that learning communities offer a limited number of spaces, so if you are invited and you would like to participate, please do not delay in returning your agreement.
Because Learning Community members live together in specific halls, if you are accepted, you will be notified and assigned a hall and room by Residence Life. If you do not get accepted, or you are not interested in the Learning Community, you will participate in the general student room self-selection process in March.
