"Living in an LLC made my introduction to college much more enjoyable than I had anticipated and making friends was much easier. I was surrounded by other first year students who were taking the same classes as I was, and therefore I always had people to go to for homework help and making study groups was always an option. Literally after the first week of school, the group of friends I made got so close that we called ourselves a family. To this day, we all feel the same."
~ Daniel Duval, Biology Major, Class of 2016
