Women in Engineering Residential Program

Residential Program


First-year women majoring in engineering can choose to live on one of the designated engineering floors in Earhart Hall or Shreve Hall. The students who live on the engineering floors have access to female engineering mentors on an informal basis, who provide them with support and encouragement. Since engineering students share a common first-year curriculum, the women on the engineering floors are easily able to form study groups and social networks. Many of the resident assistants assigned to the engineering floors are engineering students themselves, and are able to relate to the residents academically as well as socially. In addition, the WIEP-WISP (Women in Science Program) tutoring center is located in Shreve Hall for the convenience of the students who live there. Participants in the WIEP Residential Program can also participate in other Purdue Engineering learning communities if the residency requirement is co-located or optional, and many of them do so.
