Join a Learning Community
What are learning communities?
Learning communities are courses that provide you with a community environment made up of your peers. Learning communities increase your ability to accomplish your academic and personal goals, along with providing you with a network to form friendships that can help you adjust to the college environment academically and socially.
Why should I enroll in a learning community?
College is completely different from high school. A learning community can give you a "leg up" on becoming part of the college community and knowing the difference between college customs and rules and high school customs and rules. Also, you will learn skills, habits, and attitudes that are necessary tools to succeed at TCTC and in life. You will have a community of friends learning alongside you. And, last but not least, it's fun!
How do I get enrolled?
Are you a first time student? Check out the available communities and find one that interests you. Let the advisor know you are interested in being part of a community!
Are you a returning student? Learning communities are for you, too!
Make an appointment with your advisor and make sure you've selected a community that you are interested in. If you do not know who your advisor is, then go to the Get Set tab in eTC.
Which learning community is right for you?
We have many learning community options (please see below). A thematic learning community is simply linked experiences centered on specific topics that are embedded in the curriculum of COL 105 (Freshman Seminar). A linked learning community consists of one or two academic courses that may be linked to a COL 105 (Freshman Seminar). An integrated learning community is a content course that has COL 105 behaviors and outcomes embedded in the regualr curriculum. Above all else, learning communities give you the opportunity to learn and have fun. Who doesn't want to do that?
Learning communities are made possible by LC2.
