The College of Engineering
Engineering Learning Community
The Engineering Learning Community accepts 20 - 25 freshman engineering students each fall (all four engineering majors). Students in the ELC live in the same dorm, take two classes together their first two semesters at Rowan, and participate in extracurricular activities. This helps students form bonds with engineering students and faculty and helps with the transition to college. According to one ELC student
I liked the ELC because you met people right away that were involved in your majors...We helped each other with homework. We had clinic together so we would remind each other about homework assignments.
The common ELC classes are required for all engineering majors. ELC students just take them together. They are: Freshman Clinic I & II, Advanced College Chemistry I, and Introduction to Mechanics. Extracurricular activities have ranged from social to academic. Examples of social events sponsored by the ELC are: Ice cream socials, Meet-and-greets with faculty or Juniors and Seniors, Volleyball, etc. Academic events have included sessions on Academic success strategies, Excel tutorials, Preparing for interviews, and more.
If you are interested in the ELC or have questions, email Professor Jess Everett (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you want to join, email him a short essay on why you’d like to join along with your name, major, and home town and state. Selections are typically made in April. You must pay your admission deposit to be considered. Fill out the housing form as if you are not in the ELC. Housing will be notified if you are admitted to the ELC.
