The UK Living-Learning Program, currently in its 25th year, will expand its offerings in the fall 2014 semester. Among the new options included in the expansion is the College of Communication and Information (CI).
The new community will be known as CI Connect and will help new CI students explore the various options they have when pursuing a degree at the college, while introducing them to professionals in their field and providing an abundance of other various resources. The program also aims to foster student-faculty relationships and help newcomers adjust to college life.
Approximately 23 first-year CI students will have the opportunity to live in a residence hall with an upper-level peer mentor. Those students will join forces inside and outside of the classroom as they “live and learn” together, all while becoming more familiar with their career options and preparing for life after college.
The Living-Learning Program currently offers assistance to new students in 13 programs. Six additional programs will be added in the fall. Currently, 965 students participate in the living-learning experience.
