First Year Experience
The Collaborative Learning Club (CLC) is designed to equip students with skills needed for a successful freshman year. Each campus structures the CLC differently with the goal of integrating students to a college environment and encouraging growth in the student’s STEM discipline. The CLC also includes a stipend.
(*Participation in both the residential program and CLC is required)
