Learning Communities help you make a fast, smooth, and easy transition to FAU!
 

 

Connect with 20-24 other students who share similar interests by taking your core classes together your freshman year. Learning Communities make it easier to meet people, make friends and form study groups while connecting you through shared experiences and themed activities. 

 

 

OVER 25 different communities to choose from!
 
In a Learning Community you will: 
  • Get to know people and make friends in your major or area of interest from the 1st day
  • Build relationships to make FAU’s campus feel more personal
  • Maximize your academic success
  • Get connected to FAU resources
  • Increase your likelihood to graduate on time
  • Develop a supportive network consisting of other students, peer mentors, and professors
  • Have fun!
