First-year students in Women and Leadership join us at Otterbein in a Living-Learning Community (LLC) where they explore leadership principles with other students enrolled in First Year Seminars that also are leadership-based.
Together, during the 2012-2013 academic year, the LLC students are examining their strengths, developing mentoring skills, engaging in fireside chats with campus resource professionals from Student Affairs, exploring political issues surrounding the presidential debates, and attending leadership seminars.
The LLC students participated in a challenge ropes course together to develop team-building skills.
"The ropes course helped me get over fears I didn't even know I had, and I was able to bond with students from other classes that I don't normally run into. Learning to work as a team and accomplish a common goal, or even just defining that common goal, were some of the most important skills I have learned so far. I can't wait to see what next month brings!" -LLC Participant

"My first month in the LLC has been a great experience allowing me to learn how to become a better leader, help me make great friends, and help me learn how to trust people. It has made being in college more fun." - LLC Participant
