Join this LC to learn about enhancing global understanding and the ability to address current individual and national strife.
Engineering for the Planet
The Engineering for the Planet Learning Community is designed for first-year engineering students interested in protecting and enhancing the environment and designing products so that every aspect of daily life has the least environmental impact possible.
The Engineering Honors Learning Community is designed for first-year engineering students participating in the Honors College. This year-long experience will allow you to live, study, and interact with a small group of fellow honors students.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation
If you have an interest in learning how businesses launch, compete and grow, consider the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Learning Community (ELC).
The Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) Learning Community places first-semester students in the award-winning EPICS program to design engineering-based solutions for some of the most pressing needs of the local community.
First-Year Engineering Bands and Orchestras

Future Naval Officers of Purdue
The Future Naval Officers of Purdue Learning Community is devoted to building a solid foundation for future Navy and Marine Corps Officers.
Global Engineering Cultures and Practice
At Purdue, our Global Engineering Cultures and Practice Learning Community welcomes first-year engineering students who want to develop leadership skills in the context of an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world.
Wanted: Engineering students interested in exploring engineering-related multicultural themes through community involvement. If this sounds like you, consider the IDEAS (Introducing Diversity through Engagement and Service) Learning Community!
Law and Literature, Past and Present
How far does the law express what is just or good? In this learning community you will explore questions like this and the conflicts that arise from them.
The Network Learning Community provides an exciting learning environment for first-year engineering students to develop a strong engineering support network.
Join other first-year Psychology students with your interests as they begin exploring human behavior and the mind. Through active LC participation, you will bring your classroom education to life.
Women in Engineering Residential Program
The Women in Engineering Program invites you to apply to participate in a diverse community of first-year engineering students placed on one of the engineering floors in Earhart or Harrison halls.
Students entering First-Year Engineering are required to complete online tasks prior to registering for fall classes; you will receive directions for completing the tasks from First-Year Engineering. Some of the information from these tasks is used for initial math placement. Performance on an online math assessment may impact a student's eligibility for other courses which may be part of a learning community. You should apply for the learning communities that interest you and discuss learning community placement with an advisor during STAR, the summer orientation and registration program.
