The University has a number of opportunities for involvement. One of the most helpful and highly encouraged are First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs). FIGs are a cohort of approximately 20 students that attend one (or more) classes together. FIGs are designed to expose the many facets of campus life while creating community amongst the students.
The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering has 13 EE FIGs which are able to accommodate approximately 33% of incoming 1st year students.
