As a first-year student in the Women in Science Programs (WISP) you would receive the following benefits:

  • You would live in the Women in Science Learning Community in Meredith South Hall (students living outside of the Learning Community can still participate in WISP).
  • You would have Tutoring available to you 15 hours/week conveniently located in the University Residences Support Center within Shreve Hall.
  • You would be assigned an upper-class mentor in your same major.  You and your mentor will attend monthly mentoring programs that include dinner and speakers on topics of interest.

If you are interested in joining WISP, simply apply to be part of the College of Science, Women in Science Learning Community.

The Women in Science Programs serve and nurture female College of Science students throughout their undergraduate studies. From the first-year application process to graduation day, WISP exists to strengthen Science student experiences — not only in the lecture hall or lab but through mentoring and networking as well.
