University of Southern Indiana

STEM Theme Living Community

Whether you’re majoring in one of Pott College’s sciences, engineering*, math, or kinesiology and sport, this TLC can be your home. You’ll participate in a mentoring program and interact with USI faculty. Your TLC might involve STEM-related field trips, competitions, and health & wellness events. Maybe you’ll perform experiments on food from Evansville’s Fall Festival or work with local K-12 science students!

TLC Signature Experiences:

Your TLC will engage in a mentor/mentee program with other Pott College students and faculty! You'll have bi-weekly events like cook-outs, trivia night, Thanksgiving dinner with the Dean, and student panels. Your TLC will also include health and wellness events, like learning how to deal with stress, USI's Doggie Dash (volunteer, walk, or run with doggies!), and much more. What else do you want your TLC to do? The sky's the limit, so help us help YOU have a great year! 

You will take your UNIV 101 First Year Experience with your TLC-mates. 

TLC Mentor:

Dr. Glenna Bower is your TLC Mentor! 
"Hello! I am very excited about the Pott College TLC. I have worked with the TLC’s in previous years offering a peer mentoring program. I will continue to provide the peer mentoring program in my new role as the Pott College TLC Mentor.  I am the Associate Dean of the Pott College and Professor in the Kinesiology and Sport Department. I have been at the University of Southern Indiana for almost 23 years. When I am not working, I like to bike, hike, and walk my dogs. I also enjoy watching NFL football and NCAA basketball. I am looking forward to the Pott College TLC and know that you will build lasting relationships and learn from one another. I want this to be an exciting TLC and look forward to working with all of you!"
