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.
My name is Hannah Accardy, and I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering. I did a three-term co-op with Shaw Industries in Dalton, GA, which is a flooring manufacturing company. I’ve been involved with the club women’s ultimate frisbee team since my freshman year of college. I love having a competitive outlet. One fun fact I always tell people about myself is that I have an identical twin sister. If you approach me and I act like I don’t know you, I promise I am not being rude. You are probably talking to Beth.
