The ELI Student Council is active again this semester. Each term during the academic year, two students are elected from each class to represent their fellow students. Council members organize special events and on-campus activities for ELI students. In addition, the council promotes humanitarian efforts and encourages involvement in a wide range of charitable activities.

During the Fall 2018 semester, the student council hosted celebrations for Saudi National Day, China National Day, and Turkish Republic Day. Other events included a Halloween party and occasional sports matches.
