In Their Own Words

Dayken Nash, LLC Member:
“I joined the LLC because I thought it would be a good way to get involved with the Health Sciences program. It’s great living around people taking the same classes as I am and having a similar major as mine. It’s really helpful to always have people around to help, especially first semester when you don’t know anyone. It was really nice having everyone in the LLC be in that class, because we always knew we could find help on our floor. We planned some things to do together, like volunteering and game nights and such, so it’s been a good experience.“

Wade Snowden, Health Professions LLC RA:
“I love being the Health Professions LLC RA because my residents build a stronger sense of community, and we all get to explore our future careers together.”
