STEM Focus

The living learning areas tend to bring together like minds. In STEM’s case, those minds like playing with food, LAN parties, pillow forts,  themed movie nights, and games of all kinds.

Students on the STEM track will find themselves in stimulating classroom environments, learning from professors who hold degrees from such institutions as MIT, Purdue, Rice, and Georgia Tech. At their home away from home is a close-knit group of friends who cook together, study together, and thrive together. The benefits of proximity are evident: Upperclassmen serve as mentors to help students get through the toughest classes.

In the College of Engineering and Technology, the semester kicks off with an intensive boot camp to learn about college life. Classroom projects aren’t relegated to the classroom – experiments and challenges train the brain and prepare students for internships and future careers.

Students get a jump start on finding a career, too, thanks to the close ties our programs have with the technology community.

Note: There are no courses students must enroll in for this community.
