All EIP students live together in La Plata Hall for both years of the program, creating a rich, diverse and dynamic atmosphere conducive to the free-flow sharing of ideas, team-building, and entrepreneurial activity. LaPlata is also close to other living-learning programs, the recreation center, athletic fields, and dining hall.
The EIP living community gives students a small-college feel in a large research-university campus.
As one student remarked, "Living together in La Plata (EIP residence hall) has definitely built an EIP family that is there for support with both business ideas, creative ideas, and for life in general. You can ask any EIPer about a business idea you have or bounce ideas off of other people in the start-up subgroup. At the same time, you can ask an EIPer about advice for what to do with a certain friend or if they want to go to a football game with you. EIP provides a group of friends/peers that is there for you during the weekdays and the weekends."
"EIP took the larger Maryland community and placed me in an environment filled with the most promising leaders, competitive athletes, and talented musicians. The conglomeration of a diverse group of students ensures that any incoming EIP member will feel welcome."
-- EIP student Stephanie Graf, marketing major, 2014, Fulbright Special Programme Participant
EIP students represent a broad cross-section of undergraduates from different majors and demographic backgrounds. Being exposed to such a diversity of students in a focused manner over an extended period of time provides a fertile environment for the sharing, blending and generation of novel solutions that integrate many different points of view. Cross-disciplinary teams form easily, blending students’ skills to develop the next great idea.
