Erik Keohane, Engineering LCC
Welcome… I am your LCC, Erik Keohane!
I am so excited to meet you this fall. I will be a resource for you as you navigate through your first year of college here at Minnesota State University, Mankato! Being involved with the Alpha Engineering Learning Community will help you academically as well as socially, so utilize me and your peers as much as you can!

How/what made you decide this major? I loved math in high school, and I was interested in engineering because I wanted to design things. I picked electrical engineering because It sounded the most “mathy”.
