Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community

About the E-LLC

The Honors Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community is a mentoring community intended for Honors Freshman. The E-LLC has a heavy focus on Entrepreneurship as well as helping students to achieve their Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGS). There is no specific major students in the Honors Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community need to have, just a desire to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. 

The main montra behind the Honors Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community is that consumers don't buy a product, they buy a story. As a part of the Honors ELLC, students will learn how to do just that; tell their stories. 

Advantages of the Honors Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community: 

  • Individualized Mentoring 

  • Diverse Networks 

  • Research and Internship Opportunities

The E-LLC is led by Professor Affonso and a group of dedicated mentors. Without the mentors and Professor Affonso, the E-LLC would not be possible.
