Live & Learn as a Community

You're Invited

The BizDogs Learning Community is a group of first-year, pre-business students within the Labovitz School of Business and Economics (LSBE), who elect to live together in a traditional residence hall community and take classes together, creating an environment where community members can thrive socially and academically.

Why BizDogs

  • Research shows students who participate in learning communities have higher GPAs.
  • Get to know LSBE faculty and staff who want to help you reach your goals.
  • Participate in business-specific programming to assist your development of education and career goals.
  • Explore your next life adventure. Interact with LSBE alumni to learn about career paths, success strategies, and seek guidance.
  • Attend study groups in your BizDogs Community; no traveling required.
  • Move into your residence hall one day before everyone else does.
  • Meet people from all over the state, country, and world who have different backgrounds, thoughts, and ideas.
  • Meet your new best friend or a great study buddy!
