Learning Groups for First-Year Students
Learning Groups are small groups of first-year students who meet weekly with two upperclassmen to learn about college success, academic skills and leadership development.
All first-year students in the SSS program will be assigned a Learning Group based on their class schedule. Weekly attendance is required to be in the program.
Mission: To build an engaged community of first-generation learners who actively learn from peers about themselves, college life and how to be successful and engaged students.
