Learning Communities at Mason
A Learning Community (LC) is a group of students living on campus who share a common academic college, identity, or interest!
When living in an LC, students will join like-minded peers to explore their passion areas on a deeper level, to connect to vital campus resources, and to grow both in and out of the classroom. Students in the same learning communities live together in a residence hall, which makes it easier to make connections within the Mason community.
All first-year residential students will belong to an LC. LCs are also offered to upper-level residential students, but upper-level students are not required to join one.
