First-Year Learning Communities (FLCs)
The First-Year Learning Communities (FLCs) program in the Faculty of Arts and Science is designed to improve the transitional experience for first-year students.
FLCs (pronounced "flicks") provide first-year students with the opportunity to meet classmates, develop friendships, form study groups, and develop academic and personal skills, as well as introduce you to the resources, opportunities, culture, and treasures of the campus and its surrounding community.
The 24 students in each FLC, who will be enrolled in the same core courses, will meet regularly outside of class time for useful and fun activities. Each FLC group is facilitated by an upper-year student Peer Mentor and an Assistant Peer Mentor, under the guidance of a Staff Advisor (from the college, department, or program) and a Faculty Advisor; these four individuals are the FLC Team. The content of FLC meetings will address three broad transition areas: academic, developmental, and social.
Some of the interesting and fun topics that may be covered in FLC meetings include: time management, study strategies, campus traditions and history, mastering tests and exams, choosing a program of study, and career explorations. There will also be recreational and social activities, and much more!
