Engineering Learning Community

Abby Sofia Pollock
Abby Sofia Pollock, a mechanical engineering student, talks about her experience with the Engineering Learning Community.

The Engineering Learning Community (ELC) provides an opportunity for first-year engineering students to live and learn together. In the ELC, students come together with advisors, peers and upperclassmen to learn, socialize and support one another.

By joining the ELC, you have an opportunity to establish a sense of community with like-minded peers while receiving exclusive access to resources that are specifically designed to promote your transition to college.

If you become an ELC Member, you will:

  • Live in a Drexel residence hall with other ELC Members;
  • Take first-year engineering courses with other ELC Members;
  • Benefit from exclusive tutoring and peer mentoring programs;
  • Interact with College of Engineering students, organization leaders and upperclassmen;
  • Gain access to ELC-specific social and professional events, such as game nights and engineering workshops.

To Apply

Indicate your interest on your University Housing Application. The Housing Application will prompt you to answer a few brief questions related to your interest in joining the ELC. Please note that you must be living on campus to be eligible for a space in the ELC.

“It sounds cheesy, but the ELC had a hand in shaping who I am. It provided me with friends I will hold with me for the rest of my life… The ELC will always be representative of a new an exciting period in my life. It will always hold dear memories.”
