Meaningful Undergraduate Living/Learning Experience – Orientation, Retention, Graduation
Leadership College (LC) is a living and learning option for freshman and sophomore students focusing on students’ academic and personal success. Leadership College students are given the opportunity to interact more directly with faculty both in classes and in the residence halls to enhance learning in these courses.
“LC makes the transition from home to college easier because we live together, go to class together, study together, and go on fun trips together. Mule.org is togetherness.” – Brandy Humphries, Genoa, AR
Leadership College fosters a “living and learning” environment. Each semester students enroll in a common block of classes, resulting in the formation of a “learning community.” An exciting environment is created in which students share responsibility for learning and enjoy studying more.
“LC is the best. If it wasn’t for this program, I might not be in college.” – Luke Watkins, Vandervoort, AR
The other component to the living and learning environment is involvement. Students take an active role in planning and initiating activities on their floors and within the hall. Students are encouraged to participate in campus activities such as Homecoming, Intramural sports, campus organizations, and other programs that enrich the college experience.
“LC is a great program. It helps us gain friends, because we all live together. We have our classes together, so we can always get help with our homework. We learn from each other, from the trips, and we help each other.” – Michael Hunt, Clyde, Texas
