The STEM community brings together students interested in the study of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students have greater prospects to network and explore STEM opportunities and career goals together.

The community seeks to promote an environment where students inspire each other while being supported by programming that helps define career goals, identifies resources and opportunities on campus, prepares students for their future, and provides academic direction.


The energy and enthusiasm in our community depends on student interaction. Our residency requirements are intended to engage you in a climate where you learn by pursuing existing passions while discovering new possibilities.

As a member of the community, you will be required to participate in a minimum of three events per semester. Possible events include:

  • Mentoring programs where sophomores, juniors, and seniors mentor first-year students.
  • Informational meetings about career advising, graduate school, internships, prestigious awards, undergraduate research, or science talks by faculty and students.
  • Community activities, such as a tutoring science fest, helping with Science Olympiad, or Girl Scout Science Day.
  • Social activities designed to develop a sense of community.


STEM-themed activities available to residents include:

  • Dinners with professors.
  • Discussions on hot topics with moderators and special guests.
  • Access to guest speakers, including attending events that bring nationally-known engineers, mathematicians, and scientists to campus each semester.
  • Weekend trips to visit industries hiring STEM graduates.
