Special interest communities: engineering, honors, arts
As you consider academic opportunities, we encourage you to look into KU’s special interest learning communities.
Honors Program Residents │ Templin Hall
Members of the KU Honors Program enjoy living with other students who emphasize academic achievement. There is a classroom on Templin's first floor, and nearby is Nunemaker Center, home to the KU Honors Program. Templin is also adjacent to Daisy Hill Commons, which contains classroom and study spaces. E-mail the KU Honors Program with questions. All Templin residents must maintain a competitive GPA.
Engineering Learning Community │ Self Hall
The School of Engineering offers an engineering learning community for freshmen. This voluntary program brings together engineering and computing students for social and enrichment opportunities. Students select floors 00 and 01 in Self Hall to live with other engineering students. They are required to enroll in a weekly seminar, ENGR 101: Engineering Student Success. For information, see the ELC website.
Hashinger Center for the Creative Arts │ Hashinger Hall
Although this is not a formal learning community, Hashinger Hall is home to the Center for the Creative Arts. From special guests such as internationally known artists, to open mic nights, and coffee house performances featuring music, poetry and comedy, Hashinger offers something for anyone who enjoys the arts.
