"The LLC is awesome and I highly recommend it.  You make friends with the same classes as you do and they make great study buddies.  you have alot in common with them from your interests to your classes."  -Mariah Moore, class of 2017
"The LLC provided the perfect environment for me to meet other students who shared the same goals as me.  As a result I met two of my best friends who not only help me study, but also help me relax.  Without the LLC, I wouldn't be the happy and successful student I am today."  -Jacqui Sippel, class of 2016
