The Fall Learning Communities program, in Saint John, will launch on Tuesday, Sept 29.

Are you interested in getting bonus marks in one of the participating first-year courses?  Do you want to better integrate to the campus community?  Interested in becoming a more well-rounded student, both academically and socially?  Then the Fall Learning Community program is for you.

Offered over ten weeks, students who participate in one session for EACH of the five modules are eligible for up to five bonus marks in one participating first-year course.  

How to participate

The Fall Learning Community program will be delivered both online and face-to-face for Fall 2020—although it is important to note that we are unable to simulcast (stream) face-to-face sessions.

The Fall program will have five modules delivered over 10 weeks (schedule and modules below). Each module will be delivered four times—you only need to attend one session for each module to be considered as attended the module.

Over the term, if you wish to change from one time slot to another, you are free to do so. Attendance is tracked and combined for all four sessions for each module.

During each module, the day and times of delivery for each session will be consistent.

Tuesday 9-10 a.m. | Delivered via Teams. Join now. (you need to join the team to get access to meeting rooms)
Tuesday 12-1 p.m. | Delivered in-person in Oland Hall 106. Limited seating, register in advance.
Wednesday 2-3 p.m. | Delivered in-person in Hazen Hall 125. Limited seating, register in advance.
