Coming from a different state, I did not know anyone when I first arrived. However, now I have met the majority of people in the Business LLC. Whether in class or in the dorm, you are able to find people you can connect with on a more personal level, and that helps make Texas State feel like home. The immense accessibility for assistance has really helped me academically. The LLC takes BLAW and US 1100 together, so Instead of having to meet at the library or somewhere outside of the residence hall to study with someone, I can simply knock on any of my neighbors' door to ask them if they want to study for a class. Even if we are not in the same class together, we help and encourage each other to be better academically.
Everyone is very supportive and they are always willing to help me with school work or any problems that may arise. I like how supportive my LLC is, even in during tough times (like weeks with multiple tests). My fellow residents are always there to motivate me to finish my work or even help me with it in any way they can. In addition to educational events, we do social activities such as the Murder Mystery Halloween party. We got to escape our stress and come together as friends for a while. Even though we weren’t the best at the game, I know we all truly enjoyed it.
