Living & Learning Communities

One of the key features of CNR’s Honors Program is its LLC, located in Ursula Hall, which brings together the academics of college life with the residential.  This morning — bright and early — senior Katy Baudendistel, former Resident Advisor for the Honors LLC, and first year Honors student Amanda Malone gave a brilliant presentation about the benefits of LLCs to college life to a standing room only crowd.  They emphasized the retention benefits of LLCs, as well as the way the program helps ease a first year student’s transition to college and how it provides academic and social support throughout the year.  A crowd pleasing moment of the presentation?  When Amanda talked about the goody bags that Katy created to greet the first year cohort last fall, filled with candy, highlighters, and — most importantly — her phone number!
