“Home is where Oneida is.” That’s what all of the students living here say. As the biggest building within the College-in-Woods community, Oneida Hall is home to over 300 students who are active participants in area traditions, community service events and wear their building color, black, with pride. With a staff of ten Resident Assistants and a Resident Director, Oneida is truly a place to live, learn and most importantly call home.

The Oneida Hall Learning Community 2013-2014


Students in either the Mohawk or Oneida Learning Community are required to take two courses: we recommend one of Philosophy 201B, Philo 146.3, and Poli Sci 113, and one of the WRIT111 sections or HDEV 105. You will note that the lectures for Philo 201 and Philo 146 are at the same time, so you can take only one of those; you can however take Poli Sci 113 together with any of the other courses, and it would be possible to take both WRIT 111 (either section) and HDEV 105.

We have, limited to CIW students, and early availability for those who enroll in the Oneida or Mohawk Learning Community:

• Two sections of WRIT 111, a course strongly recommended for all Freshmen (Gened J); Tuesday and Thursday 2:50 – 4:15 and Tuesday and Thursday 4:25-5:50. This year the theme is "Coming to Voice in the Wake of the 2012 Election." This course will be taught in Mohawk Hall.
• One section of HDEV 105: Wednesday 9:40-11:40. This course is designed to help students adjust to the university environment. It carries Gened O credit. Taught by Roni O'Geen, this course will be taught in Mohawk Hall.
• Philosophy 201B: Plato and Aristotle. Lecture TR 10:05-11:40, special discussion section with Faculty Master Preus W 8:30-9:30, Gened J. This course is required for the Philosophy major and counts toward the PPL major.
• Philosophy 146: Law and Justice. Lecture TR 10:05-11:40, Section 3, F 9:40, is reserved for CIW students and is possibly the only way, as a first year student, you'll get into this course. The lecturer is Max Pensky, Chair of the Philosophy Department.
• Political Science 113: Comparative Politics TR 11:40-1:05, section 6, W 5:50-6:50. The lecturer is Professor Heller Fordham.

The Oneida Learning Community is a great opportunity to get to know other students with many of the same interests, and to work together with them for your first semester in college. For more information (and for more explanation about all these confusing academic abbreviations), please contact
