This year new students to the University of Saskatchewan are encouraged to join a Learning Community in the first term (September – December) of their first year. A Learning Community is a small group of first-year students who sign-up for a common set of either two or three of their courses together and meet once a week with successful upper-year students to make the connection between their studies and their world.

Students can choose among sets of courses that fit with their interests, program goals, or the distribution requirements for their degree. Creating a sense of community at the U of S is all about making connections – between people with common interests and goals, between different areas of study, and between the communities we care about. These connections form the foundation for an enriching University experience that supports new students throughout their entire degree.

All U of S students in their first year are encouraged to explore their interests through more than one area of study because making connections requires seeing the world from many different points of view. Even within a specific field of study or career, the possibilities are vast and the skill set is diverse. Even if a first year student knows exactly what s/he wants to do at the U of S and beyond, experience is what moves us forward. Learning Communities help students to make connections, and refine the direction they wish to take.

Interested students must sign-up for a Learning Community before June 16th.
