Georgia State's Freshmen Learning Communities (FLCs) offer a unique opportunity for incoming freshmen to connect with the university and establish a solid foundation to ensure their academic success.
The FLC program began in 1999 with 11 learning communities and has since grown to include more than 1,600 incoming freshmen, offering 71 learning communities as of this past fall. Each FLC cluster is designed around general education core curriculum courses that will apply to any major. All FLC clusters require students to volunteer in the community.
This semester, Georgia State’s FLCs volunteered at Cook Elementary in Atlanta, Oakland Cemetery and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spaulding. Through their involvement in an FLC, students form a small, friendly community within a large university.
