I am a student multi-engine pilot. We were repositioning from the north ramp to the south ramp. As I was pulling into a tie- down, and my left main gear sunk into dirt at edge of pavement, the #1 engine struck the concrete. There were no injuries. The problem could have been eliminated by filling in dirt and packing it correctly. There were no warning signs stating a 'soft shoulder' or anything of that nature.
