STEM community for first-year students

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Community in North Hall is the place for you to get the most out of your first year of college with a diverse group of first-year students who are also studying science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. 

You’ll take part in special academic and career-oriented activities just for the people in the STEM community. You’ll also be able to connect with faculty and staff involved in STEM fields, as well as upperlevel students in the School of Science.

If you identify as female, you can also join the WiSE community, which offers additional programming for women in STEM.
