SHaRP Living Learning Community and Scholars Program in the GT College of Sciences

Science and Math Living Learning Communities:

 

SHaRP - Science, Health and Related Professions

SMaRT - Science and Math Research Training

 

The College of Sciences proudly presents TWO incredible options for Living Learning Communities (LLCs) at Georgia Tech. The Science and Math Living Learning Communities present students with a strong foundation for success in pre-health, mathematics, science, and undergraduate research programs of study.

This may include pre-medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, animal/veterinarian science, physical therapy, nursing, physician assistance, health research, theoretical mathematics, astrophysics, genetics, ecology, and everything in-between.

Students in the College of Sciences are strongly encouraged to apply (i.e., those students with a major in the Schools of Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Physics and Psychology). Students in other majors may be accepted into the program as well if you have a strong passion for foundations in science, mathematics, or prehealth opportunities. 

The program includes:

  • Residence in the newly renovated Caldwell and Folk First-Year Experience residence hall on West Campus.
  • Co-enrollment with other participants in a set of core classes (e.g., chemistry, biology, mathematics, English, GT1000).
  • Explore opportunities in healthcare and undergraduate research though lunch lecture series and dinners with a wide variety of practicing health care professionals and professional researchers.
  • Behind-the-scenes access to health care centers and research laboratories.
  • Attendance at the Living Learning Community Retreat in the fall - Mandatory. Date TBD
  • Coordination with the Office of Prehealth Advising through walk-in ours offered right in Caldwell Hall, as well as one on one appointments.
  • Partnerships with the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program and PURA.
  • Explore opportunities through Pre-Health student organizations as they host meetings and events in Caldwell and West Commons Classroom.
  • Other social and professional development opportunities.

Please note that there is a $400 SHaRP LLC program fee per semester (i.e. fall 2018 and spring 2019) that covers the cost of excursions, professional development activities and social activities.
