Learning and Living-Learning Communities are unique academic opportunities for first-year Auburn students. By participating in a Learning Community, students are involved in an environment that helps them transition to college through faculty interaction, which improves student retention and academic success. Each Learning Community consists of 20 to 25 students sharing several classes. Students are also exposed to a small community of peers with similar academic interests and a supportive network of fellow students, peer educators and professors. The Education Learning Community offers incoming freshmen the opportunity to connect with other Education students, faculty and administrators within the College of Education. Members of the community also engage in organized activities to enhance and promote collaboration, advocacy and diversity within our college.
The Education Learning Community is designed for student in teacher certification majors.
The Kinesiology Learning Community is designed for students pursing degrees in Pre-Exercise Science, Physical Activity and Health , and Rehabilitation and Disability Studies; especially those interested in Occupational and Physical Therapy.
The Kinesiology: Medical School Bound! Learning Community is designed for students pursing a degree in Exercise Science and planning to advance to medical school.
Students will have the option to live together in the residence halls, however, selecting a living option is not a requirement of the Education Learning Community.
