Civil Engineering Keystone

Majors Eligible to Join

Open to Civil Engineering majors only.

Program Description

The purpose of the Civil Engineering Keystone Learning Community is to help freshmen and transfer students adjust to college life at Iowa State, explore professional opportunities in civil engineering, and connect with their peers within Civil Engineering. Small groups of students will be led by Peer Mentors in team building and social activities. The Learning Community will help students develop the personal and leadership skills needed to succeed in the major and future careers. The course component of Learning Community (CE 120) will include activities such as Career Fair preparation, course registration guidance, work site tours, and faculty interactions. This learning community is designed to allow first-year students to enroll in a number of common courses with peers in their major.
