Launch your Iowa State adventure with a group of like-minded new students.  Learning Communities in LAS connect students who share professional goals, cultural identity, majors or academic strengths such as writing or leadership.  Whether you are actively exploring your major options or have already chosen a path, you will develop partnerships with peer mentors, current students, faculty and staff who will help guide you through your first year.

You’ll find a complete list of learning communities open to LAS students on the Iowa State University Learning Communities webpage.

Everything seemed so overwhelming, but the idea of a learning community stuck out to me. It was a group of people sharing my major, in the same classes as me, and that gave me a lot of peace of mind.
