The Intersection of Residential Living, Academic Learning, and Community Building
STEM City is a living-learning community organized for new first-time, first-year students who have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is comprised of two cohorts: CoSM STEM Citizens and College of Engineering and Computer Science students. Each cohort has its own identity and specialized services although there is some overlap in programming and interactions.
Students who become CoSM STEM Citizens receive structured academic and social programming, specialized technology, and educational resources and services that create opportunities for community bonding and connecting new students to faculty, staff, and other students in their discipline.
