ESC COVID-19 Resource Page

Welcome to the Resources Page for COVID-19, made by the Engineering Student Council. Here you can find detailed information on the state of the various COE resource hubs, and what resources they can provide during remote learning, including the CDC, Tutoring, CDI and more!

Academic Advising

First-Year Students

All advising appointments are offered via Zoom for the Spring Term. Students can find out how to schedule their appointment (and other FAQ’s, resources, how to use Zoom, etc.) through their First-Year Engineering Canvas Course.

Virtual drop-ins were offered in Week 1 and will not be offered on a daily basis throughout the rest of the term (with the possible exception of registration time in Week 9). Students are encouraged to reach out to their Academic Advisor via email if they have questions or would like to setup an additional time to chat via Zoom outside of their appointment time.

Students will declare their major in Spring Term and will be offered ways to start learning/connecting with school advisors (TBD, likely webinars, or welcome videos)

Incoming or Prospective students

More info on what (START orientation will look like this summer will be coming soon (will not be on-campus but through other formats)

Prospective students can reach out to an advisor over email if they would like to talk over the phone or Zoom with questions. First-Year students (graduating this year from High School, or less than 24 credits transfer credits) should reach out to a FY advisor . Prospective Transfer students should reach out to an Academic Advisor in the school of the major they wish to pursue.

Handshake: thousands of jobs and employers, career expos, workshops and more.

The COE Student Ambassador program is having its regular bimonthly meetings via Zoom this term.

Throughout this Spring, Student Ambassadors are engaged in virtual Zoom chats with prospective students, as well as webinars for admitted and prospective students along with some COE faculty/staff.

Living-Learning Community


345 students still living in LLC (Hawley, Buxton, Cauthorn Halls) are in the process of being separated into individual rooms (if currently with roommate) per state guidelines; UHDS is trying through this process to keep LLC students in LLC if they’re being separated.

Planned Spring LLC events were minimal due to heavy general spring programming, and have been cancelled.

Meeting on Thursday with RDs to determine possibilities for online programming.

Update (4/10): Actual number of residents is about 50 per building (approx. 150 total) based on wellness checks. Students still living in the COE LLC have been added to a Hall Community Canvas course for announcements. Most programming will be passive in nature (bulletin boards, newsletters, etc.) but will consider adding in a few virtual events including looking at ways to be involved with Expo.


Drop-in tutoring will also be offered remotely, via Zoom, this term. Students can still access the schedule online at, where they can also find Zoom meeting info. We’re supporting similar classes as in the past (CS 16x, 261, 271; ENGR 112, 211-213; CH, PH, MTH), but we also have expanded our offerings within the CBEE/ChE coursework as well, so be sure to check the schedule!

We have also created the #coe-academic-supportchannel on the Slack COE Hub so that we can provide updates and opportunities in real-time. If you’re not already on Slack, I’d recommend checking out the COE Hub, as it’s open to all COE faculty, staff and students.

Supplemental Instruction through the Academic Success Center is being offered remotely this term and when I spoke with their coordinator this morning, he said registration is slower than normal –which means there are more spots open for students. Please encourage students to register, as SI consistently proves to be effective for students.
