The STEM LLC is a unique residential based living-learning community for first-year students pursuing a degree in science (physics, chemistry, or non-medical aspects of biology), technology (computing), engineering or math. This experience will assist students in navigating challenging first-year courses and in making life-long friendships.
As a participant in the STEM LLC at the University of North Florida, students can expect to receive intentional academic support within the community through advising, tutoring and organized study groups, as well as take part in fun, social opportunities being hosted by the LLC to help students further develop a sense of community with their peers. Students will hear from faculty, staff, and professionals in the STEM disciplines to gain a better understanding of the various types of careers they can pursue science, technology, engineering, and math. The community also helps students explore opportunities around STEM research and begin developing professional skills needed to succeed in a STEM career.
Recent STEM LLC activities have included:
The community provides a student success course specially designed for STEM LLC residents focusing on academic achievement and learning strategies needed to do well in university level coursework, career investigation, identify healthy behaviors, and more. The seminar meets one night a week in the classroom of the students’ residence hall and is a required experience.
The STEM LLC will last the entire fall and spring semester. Students admitted into the STEM LLC will live within the community for both terms.
