The U of I has a lot to offer, and the Learning Communities program is here to help you make the most of it.
Some of the best years of your life will be experienced here at the U of I. But it is a big change—new surroundings, new people, new things to learn. We want you to be well prepared. That's why we created Learning Communities—a program that helps get your college career off to a strong start.
Learning Communities (LCs) are groups of 14 to 18 freshmen who are enrolled together in one general education class together during the fall semester. These students also attend a one-hour weekly discussion—for credit—where peer mentors, called Learning Leaders, share tips on everything from test-taking to using campus resources.
Some of the students in LCs study together; many students in LCs become long-lasting friends.
