A group of students along with Bill Snyder look at the camera and hold signs with words "unity", "consistency", "commitment" and others These Student Success CAT Communities engage first-year students with a diverse community of goal-oriented peers, facilitate individual academic guidance, and assist students in developing a strong educational foundation. These learning and living-learning communities foster independent learning, build spaces of belonging, inspire engagement, develop multicultural competencies, and provide students with the tools and skills needed to succeed in college.

Within the courses, there is an emphasis on college student success skills such as time management, study skills, critical thinking strategies, and more based on students' needs each semester. They provide a place to ask questions about the University and practice the skills needed to succeed as a first-year student.

Student Success CAT Communities are an excellent option for any student wanting to navigate the college experience with a group of their peers, and we highly recommend these learning communities to first-generation students, Exploratory Studies students, Arts and Sciences students, and anyone admitted to K-State by exception. In fact, some of these CAT Communities have been designed specifically for first-generation students (First in the Family) and Exploratory Studies students (Find Your Fit). All of them will provide the kinds of support and connection to help you flourish in your first-year.
