Why live with us?

The ChE Learning Community was created to help new freshman get to know ChE faculty and other new ChE students so students will feel more comfortable approaching and interacting with faculty and staff across campus. A peer mentor will be available to organize Community meetings & activities, show them around campus, refer them to resources, help with study sessions, and plan industrial field trips. In addition to taking courses together that satisfy degree requirements, ChE Learning Community students enjoy other academic and social activities to enrich their learning. 

Participants will enroll in a set of required courses with other ChE students, which include: 

Fall:

  • Math 165 Calculus I
  • Chem 177 General Chemistry
  • Chem 177L General Chemistry Lab
  • Engr 101 Engineering Orientation
  • ChE 104X Learning Community Seminar

Spring:

  • Math 166 Calculus II
  • Chem 178 General Chemistry
  • Chem 178L General Chemistry Lab
  • Phys 221 Intro. to Physics I
  • ChE 104 Learning Community Seminar

The focus of ChE 104 is on learning about the profession, curriculum, career planning, and research opportunities.
