A First-Year Learning Community is a great way to make the most of your first year at UNL! In addition to living with other students who share your academic interests, you'll be enrolled in some shared courses, have access to a knowledgeable upperclass student mentor, and work with a faculty sponsor. First-Year Learning Communities are designed to help you connect to friends with common interests early in your freshman year.
In addition to the support you'll receive from different resources on campus, you can participate in events created specifically for your community. These activities range from networking events like dinner with the dean/director of your academic program, to social events designed to strengthen the bonds within your community, to academic and career-oriented events showing you what you can do with your degree. By sharing these important first-year experiences, you have a built-in support system to help you start college in the right way and have a great first year!
