Throughout their college years, all members of the Eureka Learning Community will receive strong academic support and counseling, faculty and peer-tutoring, group study sessions, research opportunities with faculty, and innovative out-of-class activities, as well as social activities that have been designed by their respective department. In the Eureka Learning Community, all the participating students will be closely mentored and advised by a designated faculty in their respective major to ensure satisfactory performance and successful completion of degree from Bellarmine University in four years.

To increase your career prospects so that you can get a job in the high-tech STEM workforce after graduation, the Career Development Office will hold various professional development workshops and services starting from the Freshman year. The Career Development Office will provide counseling & advising sessions on career opportunities. The Career Development Office will assist with internships opportunities, on-campus job fairs with local/regional employers, professional development workshops on resume development, job search strategies, and interview skills. The Career Development Office will invite local recruiters on-campus so that you can interact and establish relationships with the local workforce development officers. This experience will provide you with a network of well-connected professionals you can work with after graduation. To prepare those students who plan to attend graduate school, your STEM faculty mentor will help you with the GRE preparations, and assist with graduate program selection and application.

All members of the Eureka Learning Community are strongly encouraged to take part in faculty mentored research projects in their respective major, and will have an opportunity to present their research work (talks and posters) at local, state, regional or national scientific conferences or meetings in their respective fields.
