Description:
Incoming freshman majoring in dietetics, food science, and nutritional science are invited to apply and become part of the FSHN Learning Community. The yearlong residential learning community provides an opportunity for students with interests in food and nutrition careers to make meaningful connections both in and outside the classroom with their peers and departmental faculty. Students take several common courses during fall and spring semesters. Fall semester common courses include the FSHN Orientation course, First-Year Composition, Library, and Biology.

Living together in the same residence hall allows students to study together and extend their course-based learning. Students connect with upper-class peer mentors as well as department faculty during social and professional activities. Faculty mentors assist students in exploring career options and understanding the relevance of their coursework as it relates to their career work.
