The 2015-2016 school year was very exciting in the Engage/RISER LLC. This year, approximately 189 students lived in the Engage/RISER LLC in Morrill Hall. Our advisory board, consisting of student RA’s, EF faculty, and staff, as well as representatives from UT Housing planned a number of great events for students to participate in.
Over two semesters, we hosted ten study parties in the dorm to help students get prepared for the upcoming EF exams. There was lots of studying, great questions, and approximately 150 pizzas consumed at these study parties throughout the year!
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
In the fall semester, forty students took a tour of Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility. The LLC students had great questions for the scientists and engineers they interacted with on the tour.
In the spring semester, several LLC students had the chance to visit MABEline, one of the only synthetic cadavers in the world used to teach engineering students about the human body. It wasn’t all business! EF staff and faculty had fun playing in a video game tournament with students in Morrill Hall.
