Learning Communities

Wayne State hosts over 30 Learning Communities (LCs) each year. As part of the LC experience, students connect with a small group and one of our 200 peer mentors. Students will attend LC courses together and also meet with their small group and peer mentor once a week for check ins, study sessions, group work, etc. Each month, each LC also hosts social and fun events on and around campus.

NEW for Fall 2022: Check out one of our 24 First-year Interest Groups (FIGs) designed to bring together students with similar interests or academic goals by utilizing block scheduling to create learning communities and simplify registration. FIGs also incorporate small group learning, peer mentors, and fun events to help first-year students build connections in their first semester at WSU. Learn more about FIGs.
