We are very excited to welcome you to campus this August and have been working hard to make necessary adjustments to your Learning Community experience in order to meet the guidelines put forth by health officials and the university. With every announcement made related to adjustments for Fall 2020, we want you to know that Learning Communities are committed to fostering a great experience for our students.
One modification to your Learning Community experience relates to designated housing that may have been previously communicated through the application process. University Housing is following the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments. Normally, Learning Community students are required to live in designated floors within specific residence halls; however, given the direction University Housing must take in keeping student’s health and safety a priority, we are unable to guarantee students will be assigned to a specific hall. Regardless of where a student is assigned within housing, they will still be able to participate in the Learning Community, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall. While things may look different in the fall, in partnership with other residential learning communities and University Housing, we are committed to providing experiential components that will positively contribute to your CSU experience.
Finally, more information from your Learning Community will be sent to students regarding any orientation dates and other requirements.
Please see the recent communication from Housing for information related to the assignments process. For latest information, you can also check: https://housing.colostate.edu/covid-19. If you have specific questions about your residence hall assignment you can also contact University Housing by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact your Learning Community for more specific information.
We thank you for your cooperation and stay safe and enjoy the rest of the summer. We look forward to seeing you in August!
The Key Communities are highly diverse first and second year learning communities designed to assist students with their transition to and through the university. Based on active and experiential learning through interdisciplinary classes, service-learning, academic and career exploration, undergraduate research and leadership development, Key aims to increase retention and academic performance of participants, encourage campus and community involvement, and promote diversity awareness. Students who choose to apply, are accepted, and participate in Key will co-enroll in two to three classes with other Key students, live together in a designated Residence Hall, be paired with an academic and social peer mentor, and have many opportunities to make connections to the larger CSU campus.
Please visit the Key Communities website for additional information, and to complete an application.
