Engineering Freshmen Council

About Us

The Engineering Freshmen Council is an extension of Engineering Council that plans and coordinates events for freshmen in the Grainger College of Engineering. Providing Freshmen with unparalleled leadership opportunities in their first year, we are composed of committees that mirror those of EC, such as Engineering Open House, Engineering Outreach, Leadership, Service, Social, and Awards. EFC eases the transition into Engineering at Illinois while providing numerous opportunities for freshmen to engage in activities and actively participate in our Engineering events.
