There are plenty of ways to get involved in the School of Business! Look below for a few of our opportunities- from being part of one of our Learning Communities (LCs), to connecting with a faculty mentor.
The School of Business partners with the Office of Housing and Residential Life to create various unique LC experiences. Students in these LCs have the opportunity to live with other students that have similar interests. Students in the LCs have programs created to get the most out of their experience, with past programs focusing on community building, well-being, civic learning and community engagement, and career readiness (resume building, company site visits, etc.).
School of Business Learning Community:
The School of Business LC is a first-year academic learning community located in Commonwealth Hall. As a member of this LC, students enroll in two Business Foundations courses (BUS 100 and BUS 103), one course per semester. These specific LC sections are taught by faculty that are committed to being part of the School of Business LC experience.
- Economics and Financial Markets
- Marketing, Media, and Communication
Business and Entrepreneurship Learning Community:
The Business & Entrepreneurship LC is our upper-level (sophomore, junior, and senior students) learning community located in Blueridge Hall. The Business & Entrepreneurship LC welcomes students from all fields of study, who are passionate about business and/or entrepreneurship. No course is required for students to be part of this LC.
Students may become part of any of these LCs by selecting them on their housing application. Please look on the Office of Housing and Residential Life’s website to find the Housing Portal.
Being engaged outside of the classroom is a crucial part of your student experience here in the School of Business!
