The WISER LLC is for continuing women majoring in engineering and science. Women live together in Stadium Suites. The purpose of the program is to give women the network and companionship that will help them stay in engineering and science majors. Studies have shown that many women who major in engineering and science transfer out not because of grades, but because they feel isolated. The WISER LLC gives women an opportunity to thrive. Students participate in social and community activities as they pursue their STEM degrees. The scholarship opportunities for participation is an added incentive to encourage students to strive to be involved and embrace the many opportunities.

What To Expect

  • Workshops on topics ranging from time management and study skills to self-defense
  • Professional certification opportunities
  • On-site tutoring for math, science, technology and engineering classes
  • Social/professional opportunities
  • Peer mentoring

Student Perspective
“Having these kinds of supportive, creative and intellectual people here for my sophomore year has been great, and I hope to see WISER positively affect girls across this campus for a long time.
