Welcome to the Neighborhood!
The WINGS Learning Community is designed to provide students with the support needed to make a successful transition from high school to college. The community is designed to provide residents with a safe, orderly, and highly structured environment in which to live, learn and work.
The living community will offer a curriculum centered on the development of cognitive behaviors (studying, time management, etc.) and non-cognitive behaviors (Self-Concept, Realistic Self-Appraisal, Understanding Multiculturalism, Long Range Goals, Leadership, Developing Support Networks, and Community Involvement). In addition, a variety of programming will include on and off campus activities, monthly service learning projects, cohort retreats, and more.
