L3: Live. Learn. Lead. A Fort Hays State University Learning Community
In the Fall of 2010, Fort Hays State University will welcome its inaugural class of the FHSU live and learn community L3: Live. Learn. Lead. A learning community is a group of 20-30 first-year students who share some common interests, take courses together as part of an integrated curriculum led by faculty, live on the same residential hall floor, and participate in activities together throughout the year. This particular learning community, L3, was designed for incoming freshman who have an interest in leadership development, civic engagement, service, and democracy.
The thirty FHSU students participating in the learning community will experience the following throughout their freshman year:
· Live on the first floor of McMindes Hall
· Participate in learning community integrated curriculum
Current Political Issues
Sustainability and the Future: The Seven Revolutions
Introduction to Leadership Concepts

· Participate in a trip to Washington, D.C. during Spring Break 2011. During this trip, students will participate in workshops/simulations coordinated by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), creator of the 7 Revolutions; as well as experience the sites of DC.
· Experience other unique co-curricular learning activities throughout the year
Here are some facts about our 2010-2011 Learning Community:
