For Students

You can take part in a Themed Learning Community (TLC)! A TLC is a group of 2-4 courses taken by the same set of approximately 25 students over the course of a semester. These courses are taught in a way that will allow you to explore a common theme across all of the courses in your TLC.

Some of the perks of taking part in a TLC:

  • You can pre-enroll! This is the only way that you can enroll in classes before coming to orientation
  • You’ll make friends really easily because the classes are small and these students will already have a major or area of interest in common with you.
  • You will have an upperclassmen as a peer mentor to help you in your courses and make sure you know about all the awesome opportunities here on campus!
