Explore Engineering, Mathematics and Science Living Learning Community

Build Friendships

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is proud to offer a Living Learning Community (LLC) for all freshman students in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science (EMS) who are interested in exploring career opportunities in EMS fields. The EMS LLC is located in the newly renovated Dobson Hall.

Welcome to the Explore EMS LLC!


An LLC is a group of students that live together in a residence hall and focus on a particular area of interest. The Explore EMS LLC is a stimulating living environment for new freshman students in the College of EMS who are interested in learning more about EMS career opportunities as well as professional and social development. Maybe you are undecided in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science. Maybe you have declared a specific major, but you are interested in confirming your major or exploring other majors. You are in the right place; this is the LLC for you!

Our Explore EMS Living-Learning Community will help in your transition to college life and provide an opportunity for you to develop meaningful friendships with others who have similar academic goals. Students will build strong personal and academic networks with each other and with College of EMS faculty and professionals. This LLC is dedicated to providing you with career exploration and guidance by educating you on the career opportunities that arise from College of EMS majors.



You must be an incoming fall 2018 freshman in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science to join the Explore EMS LLC.



As a member of the Explore EMS LLC, you will have many unique opportunities, including:

• Touring company facilities
• Enhancing academic and social opportunities

• Increasing satisfaction with your UW-Platteville experience
• Friendships with classmates who may be in the same classes and academic programs
