The sky really is the limit for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, thanks to a new learning community that connects Open Option (undecided) students to career paths and opportunities at Iowa State.

The Sky is the Limit learning community was created in fall 2015 to provide a small and inclusive peer group for Open Option students during their first semester. The learning community targets students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and helps them explore career areas and choose a major. Department of Genetics, Development and Cell Biology Professor Clark Coffman is part of The Sky is the Limit’s leadership team.

The Sky is the Limit is made up of five different learning groups for students to choose from, including “Save Planet Earth,” “Helping People: The Health Care Career Spectrum,” “Opportunities Presented by Climate Change,” “Creative Solutions to Tomorrow’s Problems,” and “Bringing Numbers to Life.”
