||Foreign Languages and Intercultural Connections
This learning community brings together students who are passionate about languages and exploring the world first-hand. Students in the group are learning different languages at various levels and have a common interest in communicating with people in other countries while preparing for careers that incorporate their linguistic abilities and intercultural skills.
This LC explores the elements of society that express and define our popular culture, including music, film, advertisements, print media, and television. Participants will discuss the influence that media has on our popular culture and how it shapes individuals, groups, and society as a whole. Activities will encourage students to examine and analyze popular culture while connecting this influence to decisions made while in college and beyond.
Sports in Society
This LC will explore societal issues using sports as a medium. Participants will examine the roles that athletics and recreation play in our lives using a variety of resources. You don’t have to be a sports aficionado to enjoy this community – you only need an interest in how our culture is affected by them.
Sustainability and the Environment
How will the next generation find ways to balance our economic, social and environmental needs as the human population continues to grow? This LC will explore issues such as global warming, fair trade, alternative energy and environmental issues in a lively interdisciplinary context. Participants will benefit from field trips and project-based learning activities.
An information session and registration for the general LC programs will take place during Orientation.
