The Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program provides specifc First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs) for participating students. Students select their FIG during summer orientation, and FIGs meet in the fall and spring semesters.

The weekly seminar consists of discussions, presentations, activities, field trips and social activities that focus on students' academic and professional careers. FIGs are a great way to make friends and form study groups, while getting acquainted with college life. FIGs give students the opportunity to join a small cohort of their peers who share two to three common courses in addition to the weekly seminar.
