We invite you to join a learning community at SU. Participation in a learning community supports you in developing skills and attitudes that enhance academic achievement, helps you make friends quickly and easily, and gives you the tools to balance your academic and social lives.

How Do I Sign Up?

Learning community and interest housing options are available for both new students and current students.  Once you have determined which options are a good fit for you, you need to complete the process by signing up.

Before deciding to request participation in a learning community or interest housing, make sure that you are willing to make a commitment to being an active participant.  The more you put into your learning community (and college!) experience, the more you'll get out of it.
