The Engineering House Learning Community (EHLC) is committed to assisting students in their transition to the study of engineering and the Ohio State University community. It is designed to give students exposure to the variety of major options within the College of Engineering (COE), access to effective academic support services, interaction with faculty, staff, alumni and professionals, and opportunity to cultivate community with students across the COE.

This residential community is designed to develop confident, studious, inclusive leaders through experiential learning and programming. First-year students will participate in an engineering seminar. Within the class students will explore engineering professions, strengthen leadership skills and develop an appreciation for how diversity and inclusion strengthen engineering practice.
