The Business Learning Community provides a dynamic first-year experience to business majors. Students in this cohort take part in special events hosted by the College of Business Administration, network with alumni and business leaders, and learn the important skills and values of successful business men and women.

In addition to these unique opportunities, students in this cohort form a strong, supportive community in UNIV 1301 where they learn about the skills and resources necessary for college success.

"In my UNIV 1301 class, I hope to help students learn and understand what they need to do in order to be successful in their first year of college based on my past experience as well as the experience I have with my two older children that are in college," said Ms. Gloria Buchanan, UNIV 1301 Instructor.

In my class, we do fun activities such as rappelling and volunteering at the SHSU Fall Festival. These events allow the students to get to know each other as well as develop relationships that are important to doing well in college."

"During my Freshman Learning Community I was able to have my classes with the same people, developed study tools to keep my GPA up, made great friends that I still see every day, learned the true meaning of "The Measure of a Life is its Service", and learned great networking skills with businesses and people of the community. Get involved in this campus and become part of it!"
