Student Quotes

"The Engineering Living-Learning Community is great for incoming freshmen engineers because we establish friendships with people that take the same classes throughout the year. We do homework for the classes we share in the lounge which creates a positive learning environment in which peers assist peers in understanding the curriculum we are challenged with. It has impacted my academic experience well."

"Living in a living- learning community has really helped to improve my sense of what to expect for engineering studies, and has provided support for me whenever I've needed it."

"The Engineering program is awesome! There are a lot of students taking the same classes as me and the help is great. There is a great feel to the environment. I would choose to live in the Engineering Living- Learning Community again any day."
