Learning happens as a result of being exposed to different ideas and different experiences, both in the classroom and beyond, in the larger University community. It often takes other peoples’ perspectives and opinions to spark in us new and deeper ways of seeing something. Think, for example, when you listen to other people in class or in general conversation, how many times you have said to yourself, “Gee. I never thought of it that way before.” Thus, we learn and think through social exchange. Be a social learner while you are here. There are a number of social learning communities that should be of particular interest to you as a first-year student.Campus Learning CenterHibbs Hall, 1st Floor | 827-8108The Campus Learning Center offers a variety of community learning opportunities to support your work in most 100 and 200 level courses.
