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 peers and upper-level students to learn, socialize, and support one another.
If you become an ELC Member, you will:
- Live in a Drexel residence hall with other ELC Members
- Take a first-year seminar course (UNIV E101) with other ELC Members
- Interact with upper-level College of Engineering students in UNIV E101 through our specialized Peer Mentor program
Abby Sofia Pollock, a mechanical engineering student, talks about her experience with the Engineering Learning Community.

Do I have to live on campus to participate in the ELC?
I was planning to room with someone who is also attending Drexel this fall. Can we still live together if I'm accepted into the ELC program?
What if I get accepted into the Honors Program and the ELC. Can I do both?
I heard the ELC takes some classes together. Which ones?
Will I get to know students from other majors?
Does it cost anything to participate in the ELC program?
