Engineering Learning Community
The Engineering Learning Community is open to men and women at Saint Louis University. Living in this community is an excellent opportunity for students majoring in Engineering to learn from one another, collaborate together, and live in a supportive environment.
The community is designed mainly for the following engineering majors: Electrical, Aerospace, Biomedical and Mechanical. However, other Parks College Engineering, Aviation, and Technology students are allowed to live in the Learning Community as well. This includes students majoring in any Aviation or Physics programs.
The students in this community will benefit from the ongoing support of peers and faculty with similar academic interests in the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation, and Technology.
Examples of Activities:
- Touring the City Museum
- Site tours at Boeing and Caterpillar Plant
- Participation and attendance at the annual pumpkin launch contest
- Egg drop contest
- Ruben's Tube experiment
- Paint Ball trip with discussion of the physics involved with a paint ball gun
Examples of Service Involvement:
- Make a Difference Day: Painted at a local elementary school.
- Card Board City: Built housing structures from cardboard and slept in them for one night to raise awareness about homelessness.
