The ELLC

Come be a part of our Engineering Living Learning Community

The Engineering Living Learning Community (ELLC) will provide first-year engineering students the opportunity to contribute to a supportive community that encourages academic, professional and personal growth. Students will develop essential skills for a successful career in the engineering or computer science profession.

To accommodate students of varying financial means, the ELLC will be located in Ruby Hall and Critz Hall. These residence halls are located adjacent to Griffis and Nunnelee Halls, allowing engineering students in the Honors College to easily participate in ELLC activities.

Join the ELLC

  • Study Areas – The residence halls include study areas, designed to both create a sense of community and provide a social support network for first-year engineering students.
  • Engineering Organization Fair – In the fall, the engineering student council hosts an organizational fair in the ELLC, introducing freshman to the various opportunities and organizations that the BCoE offers. Studies have shown that students who engage in engineering societies are more likely to persist in engineering and reach graduation.
  • Success CoachingELLC students will have access to Engineering Student Coaches. These coaches are available to offering tutoring in certain subjects, provide advice on thriving in college, and help students locate any services they may need at MSU. In addition to having all coaches available, each ELLC student will be assigned to a specific coach for one-on-one mentoring.
  • ActivitiesVarious activities occur throughout the year to introduce students to topics to help them succeed in college. Social functions give students an opportunity to get to know each other and meet faculty and staff in the college and the university leadership.
