Academic Community CentersStudents & Parents

Why bring the academics into the living environment?

Alexander Astin (1993) says what matters most in college is:

  • Student to Student interaction
  • Student to Faculty interaction
  • Hours devoted to studying
  • Tutoring other students
  • Socializing with other students

In Guiding Principles for Creating Seamless Learning Environments for Undergraduates, George Kuh (1996) says Universities should have:

  • Clear, coherent and consistently expressed educational purposes
  • Complimentary institutional policies and practices congruent with students' characteristics and needs
  • Ample opportunities for Student Involvement in educationally purposeful out-of-class activities
  • An ethos of learning that pervades all aspects of the institution.

So how do you get involved in this?

  • Stop by an advisors' office in Jester or Kinsolving
  • Ask your RA
  • Come to the Jester City Limits or Kinsolving dining centers at night to be a part of the action
  • Open to all students!
