Program description

Mathematics and Statistics Learning Community members will work to build community by taking classes together, forming study partnerships, and getting to know one another via supplemental activities.

This learning community will provide supplementary activities outside class aimed at easing the transition to campus, exploring campus resources, investigating major-related organizations, interacting with university faculty and staff members as well as opportunities to meet professionals visiting from other mathematics and statistics institutions and organizations. 

As the group matures, students may further develop their professional skills by organizing events for their peers to attend or by engaging in service projects.

Members will experience educational, professional, service-related, and social benefits.

 

Living Options
