The Engage Living & Learning Community provides a supportive environment for first-year students who have been admitted to the College of Engineering.   Engage is founded on the common coursework taken by first-year engineering students, Engineering Fundamentals, a curriculum that includes project-oriented, hands-on team activities and explorations in physics and computer applications.


Students choosing to live in the Engage community will benefit from living in the same residence hall as other first-year engineering students taking the same courses. This makes it easy to share notes,  form study groups, and  develop camaraderie.   Engage members will develop strong bonds and personal relationships with their fellow future engineers and begin networking early with professors and upper-division students to help them be successful.   Engage LLC students have the opportunity to participate in fun and educational trips and physics exam review sessions.   Engage LLC students interact under the guidance and direction of upper-division engineering students living in the community with them.

Engage is located in Orange Hall for the 2018-2019 academic year.
