The Humanities Learning Community-also known as IDEA=Inquiry, Depth, Eloquence, Agility-is specifically for students
who have declared a major in the College of Humanities or a ajor in Liberal Studies.
Residential learning communities are created when a common bond links residential and academic programs. This common bond is you!
The IDEA Learning program places you on the same Towers at Centennial Square coed floors as other students in the program.
You automatically have people to study with, help get you to class in the mornings, and collaborate with on assignments.
The staff provide study sessions to assist you in your academic success and fun activities to give you a mental break from hitting the books.
It's a great way to learn and to meet people.
The Humanities Learning Community is for entering Frosh who are interested in apartment living and plan to
major in either Liberal Studies or the College of Humanities (American Studies, Chinese, Classics,
Comparative Literature, English, French, German, Humanities, Italian, Japanese, Journalism, Modern Jewish Studies,
Philosophy, Philosophy and Religion, Spanish, Communication Studies, Technical and Professional Writing, and Women Studies).
