World of History
The World of History is a Living-Learning Community that brings together freshman History majors and other interested students who are passionate about studying the past and its relevance for today's world. Its goal is to build an ongoing community of learners, to acquaint students with the interests of faculty members, and to help build skills and resources to succeed in the History major.
As a member of the World of History you will live with other incoming freshmen who share your interest in history. This means you can study together, attend social and co-curricular programming together, and have a supportive network of peers right from the start. Friendships form quickly in L-LCs!
The World of History will take some courses together in the fall and spring semesters of freshman year, and attend history themed events together.
