Body: 
Learning Communities at Delaware State University For incoming freshmen, Delaware State University offers a unique opportunity to help make the transition from high school to college life a lot easier. To form new friendships — and feel a sense of belonging on campus — join one of DSU’s Learning Communities! As a member of a Learning Community, you’ll have the chance to be part of a community of learners with similar interests and goals within the DSU community. You’ll take part in activities that support learning inside and outside of the classroom, and you’ll build a connection with faculty, advisors and your peers. There are two ways you can take advantage of this opportunity at Delaware State University: Option 1: Enroll in a Learning Community in which you’re linked with fellow students in a few courses based on an interest, topic or theme.   Option 2: If you’re going to live on campus, apply to join a residential Living-Learning Community, where you’ll live — and study, learn and socialize — with fellow members in the same residence hall. Option 1: Learning Communities What Can a Learning Community Offer Me? Learning Communities can provide you with a strong foundation in integrated and active learning, enriching your DSU experience. Students are linked in two or three courses based upon a common interest, special topic or interdisciplinary theme. The following are examples of linked courses that were offered in the past:  The Importance of Internships English Composition I and Business Activism in Action: The Great March on Washington and Its Cultural Legacy English Composition I and Mass Communication Life Lessons English Composition I and Mass Communication  Understanding Our Natural Environment English Composition I and Agriculture  Perception vs. Self-Actualization  English Composition I and Psychology The Chemistry of Life  English Composition I and Chemistry Overcoming Challenges to a Health Life English Composition I and Nursing  Organisms, Writing and Problem-Solving English Composition I, Biology and Quantitative Skills  How to Apply?  If you are interested in a common interest, special topic or interdisciplinary themed Learning Community, your academic advisor will assist you in selecting the right course for you. You will have an opportunity to enroll in a Learning Community with the help of your advisor during New Student Orientation.  Option 2: Living-Learning Communities How Can I Find Out More About Living-Learning Communities? If you plan to live in our traditional residence halls, there are eight residential Living-Learning Communities with specific themes from which you can choose to participate. Review the list of Living-Learning Communities to find one that matches your interests and goals and learn how to apply.
