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!
