As a new college student, the first year at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa can be both exciting and a little challenging. The UH Mānoa First Year Programs have created ACE Learning Communities to assist students in their transition into a collegiate career. Students who transition smoothly into college life are more likely to graduate and graduate on time.
The ACE Learning Communities assist students with:
- getting classes early
- establishing connections with faculty and students
- honing study skills
- fostering a sense of community early in the college experience
Incoming freshmen are also paired with upper-division peer mentors, who will help guide them through their first semester and lead weekly discussions about college success in a seminar.
The program features learning communities for all majors including General Exploratory clusters for students who have not yet decided their major.
Students can learn more and sign up for learning communities at the First Year Programs website.
