Why Should I Apply?

Any first year student with a background in high school and/or community leadership activities and/or interest in learning more about leadership development is encouraged to apply.

Working closely with the Director of Student Leadership Programs, and other staff from the Division of Student Development and Campus Life, residents in this program live in The Heights together and take four classes in the fall semester of their first year, including Psychology of Leadership, College WritingFundamentals of Speech, and New Student Seminar. Residents also participate in a weekly service learning component tied to the Psychology to Leadership class and leadership seminars and conferences throughout the academic year.

Interested first year students can sign up for this option during their Pre-Orientation and Placement test session. Please note, ELLC is not open to returning students other than those already involved in the program that are selected by the program coordinators.
