Other WIMSE Highlights

Cawthon Hall!

Our students say it all the time, they love Cawthon Hall! This beautiful residence hall was renovated in 2002 with all modern amenities, but still maintains its charm. WIMSE rooms are suite-style with a private bath shared by two rooms. Cawthon is in a premium corner of campus, close to Strozier Library (home of Starbucks Coffee and many late-night study sessions), ACE Learning Studio (private and group tutoring services) the Suwannee Dining Hall (hub for group dinners after Colloquium), and the Honors, Scholars, and Fellows House (host of Chick-fil-A, 4 Rivers BBQ, and more private study spaces). When you're not in your room or class, chances are you'll be in one of these places, so it's really convenient to have them so close. There's also a great view of Landis Fountain and Landis Green, so you'll know when something fun is going on outside!


Research Opportunities

The Research Experience Program (REP) is really the heart of WIMSE. We provide funding for our students to participate in current research in their chosen field. For students in STEM fields, this is a tremendous advantage that will really set you apart when you're looking for a job or applying to graduate school. In the spring, WIMSE hosts a Research Symposium to showcase the work of our REP students. This event is open to students, faculty, staff, friends, and family. REP is optional but strongly encouraged, and it's completely customizable to your specific interests.

Great Connections

By living in the same hall with others who have similar interests and passions, WIMSE students bond with 30+ friends that help make FSU quickly feel like home! This means you can usually find someone to walk to class with and a study buddy. You'll be surprised to find a lot of WIMSE students in your other classes too. In WIMSE, you get to meet and interact with many different scientists and researchers on campus, and even tour their labs. We also bring in several guest speakers each year to discuss opportunities for building a STEM career. The networking opportunities are never-ending in WIMSE!

"For me, the most valuable thing I gained from WIMSE was the sense of community I was a part of. WIMSE helped challenge me and I grew tremendously as a result of it both academically and personally. I went to a very small high school with a graduating class of around 130 people so when I got to campus I was very overwhelmed by the much larger atmosphere and the much harder classes. WIMSE helped me immediately feel like I had a place I belonged to and had the ability to actually succeed in my goals. WIMSE helped me meet new people, learn how to study properly, reach out when I needed help and it gave me the confidence to not only to pursue what I want to do in the future, but it also helped me believe in my abilities to actually be able to reach that goal. I would not be who I am today if it was not for WIMSE."
