Freshmen who participated in UTOP; Residential yet students can live off campus if necessary
The UTOP Learning Community is an extension of the 5 week summer experience. Although similar in intent, there are differences in approach and implementation. Students who participate in this learning community acknowledge this difference and still appreciate the benefit of joining. The UTOP Learning Community (LC) provides students with resources and activities that aid their transition into college such as peer mentoring, socials, tutoring, study groups, workshops on academic and personal growth, leadership opportunities and community service. The LC works with the colleges within the University to ensure students take the requisite classes for his/her major during the freshmen year. Students engage in rigorous coursework; Academic support services and co-curricular activities are provided.
