The STEM Scholars Residential Learning Community provides a residential environment that fosters both academic and social success for a diverse group of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) majors. This community 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 will assist students in navigating challenging first year courses and building relationships with their cohort as well as helping students explore opportunities around research and their future careers. Some of the benefits of living in this community include: small group meetings with faculty and distinguished visitors, access to staff, study groups, cohort enrollment, informal STEM seminars and workshops in the residential community, career events, programming designed to enhance academic success, and access to major club activities. This community is a partnership with Fisher College of Science and Mathematics and Housing & Residence Life.
