The Network Learning Community provides an exciting learning environment for first-year engineering students to develop a strong engineering support network. Students will participate in outside-of-class socials, community service projects and engineering-related activities. Additionally, participants will interact with upper division engineering students who serve as peer mentors in a weekly seminar. These experiences can help students develop lifelong friendships and succeed in the classroom. College of Engineering students are encouraged to apply for combining participation in this Learning Community with the Women in Engineering Learning Community housed in Earhart or Shreve Halls.
