LEAP (Life-Science Early Awareness Program) is a living-learning community program for first-year students in the Life Sciences in the Seaver College of Science and Engineering. Students in the program take three classes that are limited to LEAP students, including a special section of First Year Seminar, a course designed to make explicit the connections between courses and a seminar associated with the learning community.
In addition, LEAP students will be enrolled in the same sections of biology, chemistry and math lecture to facilitate group study. The exclusive courses, along with the residential component, and other co-curricular experiences are designed to create a fully integrated learning experience and further the student’s interest and success in pursuing careers in the life sciences. Co-curricular programs include a natural science oriented “Explore L.A. ” program” before classes begin and science-themed service activities.
