“The ELLC has helped me academically because we can all study together, but it also helped me make friendships that I otherwise would not have made. This community has been a jump start to my college career and social life. I highly recommend living in the ELLC.” 

Emma R., Environmental Engineering
“The ELLC has provided me with so many opportunities to thrive at NDSU. We take a leadership class together that has helped me learn more about myself and how to apply leadership in my classes and future career.”

Connor V., Mechanical Engineering
“Everyone cares about each other. They make sure you are getting your homework done, studying for exams, and hanging out with you on the weekends. Having someone check in on you in this new environment is very important for maintaining healthy habits.” 

The ELLC Experience:
Community Events:

Monthly events in the Engineering Leadership Learning Community are designed to be a fun way for students to build their academic network. Social events provide time and space for relationships to be built to directly and indirectly support the academic goals of learning community students.

ELLC HOCO Tournament 
Work hard, play hard. During homecoming week, ELLC created their own tournament of challenges. Great way to connect, build friendships and have fun. 

Box Fort
Move-in day results in A LOT of cardboard. Being engineers, the Engineering Leadership Learning Community students put it to good use. Students pick a day to build their very own box fort in the lounge equipped with their own homey touches. This is becoming an ELLC tradition.  

Community Art
Nothing says home better than putting up your own artwork. The ELLC students put their creative skills to the test and designed a mural for their community that is as unique as they are.
