Freshman Learning Communities

HBU is all about community!

During your first semester here you will find out for yourself how important learning communities are to HBU. 

Learning Communities are a unique freshman experience that allow you to get connected with other first-year students through taking a common group of courses.  Each Learning Community consists of a cluster of two core courses that  you will take with 15-20 other freshmen.   Included is your Freshman Year Seminar (ENGAGE 101), a required course designed to help students discover their strengths and enhance their potential for academic success on the university level.  All students are eligible to participate in a Learning Community, regardless of major.
