Hypatia and Galileo are the living learning communities for engineering students. Both communities are directed by the Center for the Enhancement of Engineering Diversity office.
Galileo lives on the 7th, 6th and half of the 5th floor of Lee Hall. Hypatia lives on the other half of the 5th floor, and all of the 3rd and 4th floors.
The majority of the students living in the communities are first year students but we also have a large team of upper class engineering students who live in hall and serve as mentors and committee members. You can see more info about the committees below.
Students commit to live in the community for one year at a time. Many students live in the community multiple years but most of the beds are reserved for first year students.
This community is designed to:
help students transition well from high school to college and start planning for your transition from college to career (it happens quicker than you realize!)
make a large university feel more like home
explore areas of your professional development as an engineer with a focus on topics of diversity
