Double Helix

This is a community for students interested in science careers in biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science.

Whether you like the scientific study of living things, the properties and behavior of matter or a combination of these, Double Helix can connect you with other young scientists wanting to study these same passions.


  • Explore the possibilities, from major exploration and academic resources to the many STEM related opportunities beyond the classroom.
  • Grow an appreciation for the range of interests in the STEM community and navigate this with peers, faculty and staff.
  • Build upon self-awareness for pursuing a STEM area. What is driving you?

Who can I live with if I join this Learning Community?

  • You can live with anyone who has a room assignment in Tutt or Fischer Hall, including students who are in other LCs in Fischer
