A sense of community contributes to student engagement in an English100-Freshman Composition class in the Sellery Hall classroom.

"I think the sense of community in the residence halls is really important for [students'] academic success. The University of Wisconsin is a big school and I think it can be intimidating a lot of times, especially for first-year students, so it's really nice to have the core group of people who you live with and have one or two or three classes in common."
-Kate Vieira, English 100-Freshman Composition Instructor
