Learning Communities

Learning Communities offer first-year students new social and academic experiences by providing opportunities to meet faculty and students who share their interests. Together, students in a Learning Community can study for exams, explore options, discuss ideas, learn the "ins and outs" of the college and have a good time! 

SUNY Oswego students that choose to participate in a Learning Community will be registered together in a block of 2 courses, which are part of their core requirements. By taking classes together, students will form bonds with faculty, staff, and students that share common interests.   Learning Communities are limited to 19 students.
