College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT)
First-year students majoring in the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology (CEAT) can take advantage of our dedicated Living Learning Program in Parker Hall. The recently renovated residence hall features traditional-style living with specialized services and programs, such as mentoring with upperclassmen (known as PEATEs), free on-site tutoring, and regular interaction with CEAT faculty and staff through socials and presentations.
The College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology's (CEAT’s) Living Learning Program was designed to offer several different living styles within the building. Students have the ability to choose between single-gender or mixed gender floors.
2nd Floor – Women Only
This floor was originally created to build a community where women feel more comfortable in engineering classes and develop important relationships with peers. You might hear it referred to as Maude’s Squad—named for Maude Spears, the first woman to receive a degree in engineering from Oklahoma A&M College.
3rd Floor – Co-Educational with a diversity, equity, and inclusion focus
The Diversity Engineering Floor (DEF) was created to build an inclusive community where students feel more comfortable in engineering classes and develop valuable relationships with peers. The DEF floor was designed with all students in mind and will provide unique resources and programming for CEAT students. The DEF floor is a great way to instantly get plugged in to the OSU CEAT community, as well as help enrich your academic experience.
4th Floor – Co-Educational
5th Floor – Men Only
(Floors will reflect the above format beginning in the 2023-2024 school year.)
