Houses Make up Our Community
Members of the ELLC are grouped together to form smaller houses, described below. While you are expected to attend your own house events, all ELLC members can attend any house event.
You are expected to attend at least three house events each semester and are strongly encouraged to attend more.
This house prides itself on the importance of exploring all opportunities. Members participate in activities designed to expose you to the numerous careers within engineering. Students will gain the skills and resources needed to make informed decisions about their education and career. Programming includes student/alumni panels and career assessments.
This house promotes a community atmosphere though service and dedication to others. Members can expect personal growth through experiences and information targeted towards their desire to help those in need. Students will have access to community service and volunteer opportunities as well as service-based organizations.
This house is founded on the idea of learning through experience. Members participate in activities that facilitate hands-on learning through robotics, machinery, and chemical reactions. Students will learn about ways their personal interests and hobbies may influence their career. Programming includes exploring Speed School organizations and competition teams.
This house strives to develop leadership capacities within its members. Through personality and strengths assessments, students can expect to learn about themselves and others, and develop the tools and resources to become a leader on-campus and in their career.
