AIMS Theme Community


The AIMS Learning Community is a place to live and learn alongside peers who share your interest and enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This learning community assists students in navigating challenging first-year courses in science, technology, and math disciplines while making lifelong friendships. It is a friendly, comfortable spot on campus where you will have easy access to your classmates and where you will have the opportunity to practice and master the fundamentals of calculus and other key courses right in your residence hall. Students in the AIMS Learning Community live in close proximity to their classrooms and laboratories. Although the AIMS Learning Community strives to enrich students’ academic success, it is far from “all work and no play”; it also creates lasting connections among community members through field trips, leadership development activities, floor programs, and shared meals.
