Engineering Exploration

“The best part of being in a Learning Community is the connections you make with other students and your peer mentor. Many of these connections and friendships will carry throughout your college career.” –Megan
“In my opinion, the best part about being in a learning community is having the opportunity to spend time with a wide variety of people who are in a similar situation as you are. In college it is so important to have a good support system, and learning communities are a wonderful place to find that.” – Michelle

 

Majors eligible to join

All engineering students who are advised through Engineering Student Services

 

Program description

The Engineering Exploration learning community is designed for first-year engineering students advised through Engineering Student Services. It provides a sense of community and academic support with clustered first year engineering courses. Students have close connections with engineering peer mentors in a small learning community class designed to assist in learning about engineering, group interaction skills and academic problem solving in order to increase success and retention. It is our hope that students get more connected to ease their transition to ISU.
