Heath and Environment Academic Living and Learning Community (H.E.A.L.L.)
This Living-Learning Community aims to help students in the Health professions bridge their experience in the classroom by providing a unique learning environment within the residence hall. Students living in this community will have the opportunity to participate in monthly exam reviews for Anatomy and Physiology as well as social activities geared towards community-building and socialization. A faculty advisor from the School of Health and Environment is also actively involved in assisting students in their career exploration and academic success.
