Living Learning Communities
Engineering students in our LLC pair up in teams to create a tower of spaghetti using only one yard of masking tape to hold a marshmallow for 60 seconds. Flickr Gallery: Spaghetti Challenge
First-year students in the School of Engineering at Widener University have the option of living in their very own community.
The Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are residential groups of students with similar interests and majors who share a designated space in the university’s resident halls. At Widener, the LLCs create a strong support group among students. The Engineering LLC brings together students with a sense of innovation, which allows for in-residence programming, structural cultural experiences, and learning opportunities that are tailored to the field.
At Widener, the LLCs offer a better retention rate, an enhanced sense of community, the creation of bonds between students with the same interests, and a stronger interaction with faculty.
All co-curricular activities are facilitated by engineering faculty and staff. Some of the exciting LLC student events include:
- Engineering group challenges
- Boeing informational sessions
- A behind-the-scenes look at senior projects
- Urban excursions
- Meetings with industry leaders
Are you interested in joining our community? Once a deposit is made with Admissions, an e-mail message will be sent describing how to complete the online housing application. Interested students can log in to Campus Cruiser and select the LLC button.
The LLC offers freshman engineering students a valuable support network of classmates, resident assistants, and faculty mentors.
