The Women in Engineering Learning Community (WiE LC) is designed to assist students in their transition to the study of engineering and the Ohio State University atmosphere. Students will move into their residence hall, Torres House, the home of the WiE Learning Community prior to Autumn Semester move-in day and spend time with faculty, alumnae, and students from various engineering disciplines. Through these interactions, participants will get a jump start on forming connections that will ensure their success as engineering students. WiE LC 2018 is sponsored by ArcelorMittlal and John Deere.
WiE LC first year and second year participants are required to participate in a Women in Engineering seminar class, ENGR 1195 and ENGR 1195.02. Students will also be enrolled in a First Year Engineering course together. During the school year, the learning community will offer various social and career building events, as well as free tutoring for math and science courses
