Software Engineering Learning Community

What is a learning community?

The Software Engineering Learning Community (SELC) is a great way to start off your college career with solid support from day one. This community is designed to give incoming freshman the opportunity to be surrounded by students with common goals and struggles. In the SELC, students will be put into learning teams with a peer mentor to assist them through their first year of college. Students will also take common courses together during their first year. The SELC is not a residential community, so students can live anywhere and participate.

How do I join?

All incoming freshman will be part of the SELC their first semester! You’ll become part of the learning community when you register for classes at orientation.

What’s a peer mentor?

Peer Mentors are upper-level Software Engineering students who want to help you succeed. Mentors facilitate study groups, workshops, and social events. They also assist students with questions about ISU, the Software Engineering major, or transitioning to college life. Learn more about each of the talented members of our PM group in the “Meet the Peer Mentors” section below.
