Student Quotes

“The BLLC helped me transition to the first year of college because my RAM and my RA were always willing to answer questions and give me advice. It is like a family—we all have similar majors, and it allows us to connect and build friendships we might never have made. Even after I graduate, I will always look back with fondness to the BLLC.”

– Avi Shrivastava

“The advantages are that I lived close to people that were taking the same courses as me so we could help each other easily and without having to go out in the cold or rain”

– Simon Hoeps
