While most students were still enjoying the last days of summer at home, Engage Leadership Team students moved in to Orange Hall to begin a week of training, collaborating, and event planning for the newest class of Engineering Freshman. The Engage Leadership Team (ELT) is a new team of upper class engineering students that are committed to providing positive experiences and support for first-year engineering students living in the Engage Living and Learning Community (LLC). ELT students live in the apartments alongside the freshman in Orange Hall. Members of the ELT will provide Engage LLC students with mentoring, academic support, personal and professional development programs, community service activities, and fun events to provide a strong sense of community and support for students in the first year of engineering school. ELT members will be participating in our new course, EF 302, Engineering Leadership Seminar, which focuses on enhancement of leadership, technical communication, organizational, and mentoring skills, and development of strategies for academic success and creating an all-inclusive environment. The ELT Team is geared up for the kickoff of a groundbreaking year for ENGAGE!
