It’s one thing to study a subject in college; it’s another to live it 24/7.
That’s the opportunity provided to University of Iowa first- and second-year undergraduate students through more than 15 living-learning communities. There are communities for students majoring in education, health sciences, journalism, engineering, business, arts and pre-med, among others.
Students in these communities often take many of the same classes, live together in resident halls, study together and have access to a range of tailored programs and faculty support to help make sure they succeed.
Being part of a living-learning community is also fun. Students form a bond and, after the books are put away for the day, often take part in social activities, whether it’s attending a film, holding game nights or going out for ice cream.
