As a freshman, is it important to you…
… to know everyone in your classes?
… to know your teachers work together to help you succeed?
… to succeed in your first semester at Eastfield?
… to be ready to transfer to a four-year university in two years?
If so, a freshman learning community might be for you. A learning community is a group of students who attend the same classes. If you have passed as “college ready” in both reading and writing, we have two learning community options for you.
If you need to take Developmental Math 0097, register for the FTW: For The Win learning community. You can complete 12 credit hours (4 courses) between 8 a.m. and 12:10 p.m. on Monday/Wednesday/Friday with Professors Matt Hinckley (HIST 1301-4803), Shazia Ali (ENGL 1301-4803), Ana Rodriguez (EDUC 1300-4803) and Erika Glaser (DMAT 0097-4803). FTW: For The Win is designed to get you on the path to College Algebra in one calendar year, and ready to transfer and/or graduate with an associate degree in two years.
If you are at a different level in MATH/DMAT, register for the Writing History: Stories, Victories, and the American Identity Learning Community. Professors Shazia Ali and Mike Walker team-teach ENGL 1301-4801 and HIST 1301-4801 from 9:30 to 12:20 on Tuesday/Thursday. Writing History: Stories, Victories, and the American Identity allows you to customize your other freshman courses according to your own schedule needs.
