As a freshman, I was a part of the Global Citizenship Living Learning Community (LLC). I joined on a whim, thinking that it would provide an easier way to overcome my shyness and make new friends at college, while giving me an opportunity to take some non-science classes before I jumped into my nursing only courses.
Joining my LLC was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My community helped me get acquainted to college, and it introduced me to some pretty cool people.
As part of the community, we had the opportunity to take a class each semester with just the 30 of us. Our second semester, we took ANTH 271: Globalization and Local Cultures, with Dr. Kathleen Adams. (Fun Fact: Dr. Adams is one of the best 300 professors in the nation, according to Princeton Review!)
Dr. Adams really supported our community, and she recently organized a reunion for us to all go out to eat at Uncommon Ground. It was an awesome and delicious get together. We all shared appetizers (sweet potato fries, artichoke dip and flatbread) and I had squash risotto for my main course, with pear brown butter cake for dessert. It was more than delicious.
It was so nice to finally see everyone again, and a good break to think about as I try and survive the last two weeks of the semester.
Oh, and if you have any questions about LLCs, feel free to leave a comment here!
