STEM Residential Learning Community
In the Fall 2013 semester, the Fisher College of Science and Mathematics (FCSM) established the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Residential Learning Community (RLC) with the goal of providing a residential environment that fosters both academic and social success for a diverse group of FCSM majors interested in science and mathematics. Living in the STEM RLC is a great way for students to connect with other students, faculty and staff; build community; and enhance their learning experience at Towson University. This experience assists students in navigating challenging first-year courses and in making life-long friendships as well as helping students explore opportunities around research and their future careers.

Benefits of living in the FCSM STEM RLC include:

  • Ability to learn about classes, programs of study, internships, research and career opportunities
  • Formation of study groups with other STEM Scholars and study areas within the residential community with tables and white boards
  • Ability to attend informal STEM seminars and workshops held in the residential community
  • Tutoring sessions administered by upper class majors and graduate students
  • Small group meetings with faculty and distinguished visitors to FCSM
  • Field trips and tours of on-campus research facilities
  • Career events and opportunities to closely interact with individuals working in related areas or professions
  • Programming designed to enhance academic success (e.g., time management, study skills)
  • Access to Major Club activities and meetings in the residential community
  • Cohort participation in campus events outside FCSM
  • Opportunities for civic engagement and community outreach

For information on events occurring for the STEM Residential Learning Community see the
