The entirety of CEAT Parker Hall is a Living, Learning Program, with three floors
of men and one of women. Following are the descriptions of the two specific LLP options
within CEAT Parker Hall:
Maude’s Squad LLP - The Maude’s Squad Living Learning Program was created for female freshmen majoring in engineering, architecture and engineering technology to build and support a community of women through mentoring, tutoring, networking with fellow students, faculty and industry representatives, special programming and campus life resources. This LLP resides on the second floor, and is named for the first woman to receive a degree in engineering from Oklahoma A&M college, Maude Spears.
Diversity Engineering Floor (DEF) - The purpose of DEF Living Learning Program is to enhance the first-year experience of students seeking to live in a diverse environment filled with other CEAT students.
