Rutgers offers our incoming first-year students with a multitude of learning community offerings. Students in first-year learning communities will enjoy the benefits of sharing common residential and academic experiences while making new friends, exploring common interests and being a part of a close community of peers. We are excited for your participation in a Rutgers Learning Community. These programs will provide you with an opportunity to connect to a community of faculty, staff, and fellow students and to receive individualized attention to build foundations for success in your first year and beyond.
