• Learning Communities @ Triton  



    Dear Student,  

    It’s with great pleasure and open heart that Triton College welcomes you to an opportunity to engage and participate in scholarly exchange and applicable knowledge through Triton Learning Communities. You will be working collaboratively with a diverse group of people, growing academically and enriching your life experience. We look forward to your future success and personal achievement as you explore our learning community course offerings.

    Learning Communities combine classes that complement each other and offer you an opportunity to participate in a richer learning experience. The Learning Community classes are linked with a common theme, shared goals and activities. With the same group of students enrolled in the Learning Community classes, students and professors enjoy closer relationships and learning experiences.

    Statistics show that Learning Community participants achieve higher grades and are better prepared for transfer to four-year universities.

    Join a Learning Community and be part of a FUN and rewarding learning experience!
