Science Pipeline (for STEM majors)

Science Pipeline Logo

Through a Student Support Services grant, Science Pipeline will provide academic assistance (to those who qualify) to students who will pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM).

Beginning in fall of 2017, Science Pipeline will be located in Retama hall.


Science Pipeline students will also take a few courses together, see below.

Science Pipeline students will participate in academic coaching, goal setting, one-on-one tutoring, cultural trips, and they will focus on succeeding in preparatory science courses. Science Pipeline students will be led by a Resident Assistant (RA) who is also a STEM major.

Student Support Services students and Science Pipeline students have access to college success workshops and seminars, a computer lab, quiet study areas, a calculator loan program, and an on-line financial literacy program.

Meet Science Pipeline Advisor, Danielle Brisby

I am an alumni of Texas State University. I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in social work. I aspire to help educate, encourage and inspire students who come from very diverse backgrounds to overcome adversity and strive for success. During my free time I love to read, write, and do research. I absolutely love what I do! My favorite thing is building relationships with my students and watching them grow! I have the privilege of witnessing future doctors, mathematicians, engineers, and researchers become who they said they wanted to be when they grew up. It’s pretty awesome!

I really admire the people involved in the LLC who have been role models for me in my first year of college. Logan Tyler Lorimer, Richardson (Construction Science and Management)

Being in this LLC has allowed me to meet great friends and create lasting relationships. Heather Hansen, Dallas (Biology)

I love the people who are in the LLC, and I have been able to access a lot of resources that have helped me in college. Nicholas Medrano, Smithville (Undecided)
