What are you passionate about at The College at Brockport?

The Living Learning Communities is such a great initiative that allows for students to make a smooth transition from high school to college. I am love working with the Living Learning Communities because it allows me to connect with students on a personal level and help them choose their own path while they’re a student here. The Living Learning Communities Program promotes growth in so many ways and it is fun to see how students interact with the faculty and staff that they get to know through Living Learning Community programming, field trips and events.

What's the best part of your job?
