What is a learning community?
Learning communities provide students with an opportunity to study, live, and network with peers who share their interests. Students in the CAS Learning Community live in Wright Hall, have access to common areas for studying and other events, benefit from events planned specifically around their interests and goals, and from exceptions advising and mentoring. Students also take at least one course as a cohort each of their first two semesters at Kent, providing them with a ready community for discussions, studying, and sharing of ideas.
Why should I participate?
Students living and learning in these communities begin their college career with a network of smart, engaged, and motivated learners. Building friendships with peers who share interests, who may have similar career objectives, and who are at the same stage of course work, provides a network unparalleled in the college experience. We have found that students in learning communities are often also members in other student organizations and active participants in the life of the Kent State community.
What are the benefits of joining a community?
- $1000 scholarship per academic year for the two year commitment ($500/semester for four semesters)
- Community-based events, including career-oriented sessions
- Common courses
- Residing together in Wright Hall
