Women in STEM Learning Community

Joining this community will allow you to have built in study groups, a space to navigate the unique challenges facing women in STEM fields, and the opportunities to connect with intern hosts and local employers.  Upper level STEM students will provide study sessions as role models.  You will have the opportunity to connect with female faculty on campus in these areas.

Where you'll live

We encourage you to live on campus with others in your Learning Community because that's where much of your networking takes place, but it is not required.

You can choose to live:

  • In designated Learning Community housing
    • Renovated double rooms located in Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I Halls.  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor.
    • You can choose to have another Learning Community student assigned as your roommate, or you may choose your own.
  • Other on-campus housing
    • It will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
  • Off-campus
