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.
