A heavy emphasis is placed on providing tutoring and group study opportunities for the freshman class.

“The Freshman Leadership Engineering Group has been the best experience of my freshman year. I learned how to be an effective leader and the different impacts that engineering has on our world. Not only have I grown as leader and as engineer, but I have also grown as a human being. I have met so many amazing and talented people, and I feel like I am part of such a wonderful, caring family. I have no idea where I would be without them and FLEG.”

I step out my comfort zone many times knowing that my friends in FLEG will always be there to support me and encourage me.”
