WIMSE has a limited number of scholarships available for students with financial need to assist with the cost of living in Cawthon Hall.  

What is a living-learning community?

LLC's are a select group of first-year students who share an academic interest, are housed together in a campus residence hall, and take one or more of their classes together. A special colloquium class is reserved just for LLC members. Students also participate in social and educational activities related to their interests.

WIMSE is lead by Dr. Susan Blessing, professor of physics! Beyond the first year, LLC participants are invited to remain in the WIMSE Society, our undergraduate organization which facilitates its own social, service, and research opportunities for members from the moment they enter campus through their graduation from FSU. WIMSE-exclusive programming, such as the Research Experience Program (REP), includes direct work alongside award-winning FSU faculty and researchers from across the spectrum of STEM fields, as well as fun events that help members create friendships and memories to last a lifetime.


Choosing a living-learning community can be one of the best ways to make a big university feel just like home. We HOPE YOU'LL EXPLORE WHETHER WIMSE IS THE RIGHT HOME FOR YOU!
