First Year Learning Community
You probably already know that a lot of learning happens outside the classroom. It takes place in conversations with friends over dinner, in residence hall lounges, in study groups, and with professors after class.
The First Year Learning Community (FYLC) seeks to help students make connections between what happens in the classroom and the out-of-class experience in college.
- What would it be like if some of your classes were designed to more seamlessly explore what it means to learn together in community?
- Or if everyone spent time together outside of class?
- How might your learning be enhanced if your professor came to your residence hall to teach?
The FYLC is a great way for you to ease into the new routine of academic life at college, grow closer to a group of fellow students through common experiences inside and outside the classroom, and to develop better relationships with faculty and staff within the Houghton Community.
To sign up for the FYLC, you can either sign up when you visit during Transitions 101 (May 24 or May 31) or fill out the online registration form. Registration will take place on a first-come, first-served basis so you have a better chance of getting in if you act quickly.
