Know Your ELLC Mentors and Tutors

The mentor/tutors for the Engineering Living and Learning Community are available to help you better navigate and succeed in your chosen engineering profession. They can also provide some assistance in selected courses should you need some extra help. Tutoring and mentoring is available in the third floor study rooms and lobby of Hurst Hall and in the study room of Critz Hall. The tutoring schedule can be found here.

You may first think of your ELLC Mentors and Tutors as people to help with your courses, and they can certainly do that, but you should also think of them as mentors. They are engineering students who have proven themselves capable of navigating the difficult courses, pressures of being an engineering student, and being engaged in other activities. They can help you navigate the hurdles you will find in college and provide advice on how to succeed in college. Feel free to talk to them about more than just calculus or chemistry problems.

In addition to seeking help from the mentors below, you should also check with your professor and see if there are any resources available to you in the department in which the course is taught.

Hi there, I am currently a junior studying biomedical engineering from Aurora, IL. When I’m not in class, I am involved in Dr. Simpson’s lab doing cardiovascular research and can often be found on the third floor of Old Main doing homework and studying. Other than working, researching, or doing school, I like to bake, play volleyball and go get Bop’s with my friends. I love getting to know new people and cannot wait for what this year will bring. Please reach out if you have any questions or need anything at all!

Hey everyone! I am a senior in chemical engineering from Cleveland, Mississippi. I have worked in a co-op position at Ergon Refining, Inc. for three terms and at ExxonMobil for one summer. Through these opportunities, I got to experience engineering projects and the petroleum industry first-hand. For fun, I like to exercise at the Sanderson Center, play video games, and listen to music. I look forward to tutoring with the Engineering Living Learning Community this year, and I welcome anyone to stop by for class help or advice!

Hey y'all! I am a junior in premed Biomedical Engineering from Pensacola, Florida with plans on becoming a pediatrician. I spent my time during quarantine becoming certified in Innate Immunology and Epidemiology for Public Health from Johns Hopkins University as well as learning Spanish. When I'm not studying or doing homework, I love to do all kinds of art, but painting and drawing are my favorite. I have a small side business selling my art. Here's to making this year the best that we can. Don't hesitate to reach out for help and ask questions.

Hey y’all! I’m a senior from Ocean Springs, MS, double majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Biochemistry. I started my engineering journey at State as a Civil Engineering major, though. This is my second year working with the ELLC, and I’m so excited to meet everyone. I love hanging with my cat and cooking new recipes. If you have any questions, please reach out to me!

Hi! I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering from Pensacola, FL. I completed three co-op rotations for Mississippi Power as a Distribution Engineer. My favorite part of my co-op was meeting with customers, working with the other engineers, and storm restoration. I love to cook and watch movies in my free time and when I study, I like to listen to vinyl records. Feel free to contact me with any question about school and college life.
