WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
Any incoming first year Purdue student admitted on the West Lafayette campus can apply to the Entrepreneurship Learning Community (ELC) for the upcoming fall semester.
WHERE YOU WILL LIVE
Harrison Hall (Required) and your roommate, in most cases, will be a member of the Entrepreneurship Learning Community.
WHAT IS INCLUDED
Entrepreneurship Learning Community students form an entrepreneurially-minded, multidisciplinary cohort with students from around the world. ELC students live in the same dorm, and during the fall semester of their first year, participate in a variety of entrepreneurial activities and workshops as well as take the same section of ENTR 20000 Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the first required course for the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program.
“The ELC helped to create great friendships and relationships inside and outside of the classroom and taught me the communication skills necessary to help work more productively as a part of a group. The people you meet will not only help you in the ELC classes, but they are contacts you will run into over and over again. The ELC provides so much more than just a unique skill set and interesting classes. It provides great life experience that will set you apart from everyone else and truly shape who you are as a student and person.”
– Ashley, ELC participant
