Living/Learning Communities

The College of Engineering is pleased to offer our first-year students a unifying experience through Living Learning Communities. Students share their journeys into college life as engineering majors as a unit based on their passion for the same academic interests.

Our current Engineering Living Learning Community, LLC, residents live in Coronna Hall. Along with the programming provided by Residence Hall Community Assistants (CA's) some of the special events and activities are faculty visits, department head visits, student organization meetings, facility tours of local industry (Frank's International, Begnaud, etc.), an Engineering LLC Banquet, and visits from the Engineering Deans. These events are only available for the Engineering LLC students are designed to give each person the chance to find out more about career options, available resources, and inspiration for becoming an engineer.

A great benefit of belonging to a Living Learning Community is the privilege of taking classes with other Engineering LLC students. The four classes are taken in the fall and spring semester. The classes taken together in the fall are UNIV 100, and HIST selected by the OFYE. The classes taken together in the spring are ECON 300, BIOL 121, or BIOL 110. Do not schedule these classes in the fall.

The requirements for selection as a resident of the Engineering LLC is a score of 24 or better on the ACT and a declared Engineering major and may not change their major during the academic year.
