I am a rising senior biomedical sciences student. I lived in the first-year Honors Living-Learning Community (LLC) my first year at Quinnipiac before becoming a Resident Assistant. Next year will be my fourth and final year living on campus, and I can say that I will miss it very much.

I was pretty nervous coming into college; living in a suite with seven other people definitely added to the stress. However, I couldn’t be happier that I chose to live on campus; I broke out of my shell and met some of the people that I will be friends with forever. Living in the Honors LLC was an added benefit as I was with other residents in some of the same classes and extracurricular interests. There will be over a dozen LLCs this upcoming school year, so there is no shortage of opportunity to make the best of your residential experience.

Small groups of residents are assigned an RA — we host events for you to attend, check in to see how things are going, manage any issues that may arise in the halls, and support the residential students. In every hall there is a hall director that oversees the building and also supports the residents. Long story short, there are countless professionals in the Office of Residential Life that are dedicated to making the residential experience as best as it can be.

Come live on campus and join us — I highly recommend it.
