First Year Students

Getting Started

Commuter Learning Communities (Commuter LC)

What is it?

Commuter LC is a group of first-year students who are enrolled in the same sections of courses and who are all first-year commuters. Students participating in the LC program will enroll in a block of courses together, comprised of three LC courses each semester during the first year.

Why do it?

  • A large network of friends
  • Enhance community spirit
  • Contact with faculty inside and outside of the classroom
  • Access to peer assistance and study groups
  • Improved grades
  • Assistance in reaching academic goals
  • A means to address social and academic concerns
  • An enhanced classroom experience

How do I join?

Students interested in the LC program can attend a special Living Learning Community session during New Student Orientation. This session will give students an opportunity to meet the faculty, staff, and other students involved in the LC program. Students interested in the LC program should attend the first orientation in June as space is very limited and offered on a first come first served basis.

For Parents

Parents, we are thrilled that you and your student have chosen Texas Woman’s University! One thing first year commuters struggle with is getting involved on campus. Campus involvement is an essential key to students at TWU feeling like they are part of the campus community. Commuter LC is one of many ways for first-year commuters to be involved on campus and have their own social and academic community. Students interested in the LC program should attend the first orientation in June as space is very limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
