Other Student Support Programs

Campus Living: The Engineering Hall in the University Residences/LLC is a new and exciting choice for engineering and computer science freshmen. Here students can connect with other students with similar interests, increase communication with professors, share social activities on campus and in the community, and enhance their probability of success.

John C Wahl thinkTANK: The thinkTANK, located in Janssen Engineering Building, is a center for organized tutoring and informal study sessions, as well as a place for student club/project meetings, industry internship presentations and other informational sessions. It is open daily to all students individually or in groups.

Engineering Scholars: Engineering Scholars (ES) is a select group of high-achieving students and is open to our top engineering students by invitation only. Designed to enrich the undergraduate education and experience, the ES program provides opportunities to: participate in several classes developed specifically for them (smaller class size), develop and participate in undergraduate research projects from their freshman year, attend on-campus guest lectures by world-class engineers, visit companies and meet potential employers in the field as well as engage in community service projects and other social activities.

WIISE: A residence hall has a floor dedicated to Women In Idaho Science and Engineering (WiiSE). This floor is open to any female first-year student that is studying Science or Engineering; (and often degrees found through the UI STEM program). This floor is designed to connect and support like-minded women as well as bring departmental support to the living environment.
