Fall Highlights for the Health Professions LLC

Hello! The Health Professions LLC has had an amazing time thus far since school has started! Last month we had a volleyball tournament kick-off and since then the participation of the students has been extraordinary. We had a bunch of events since October started including: watching the election, meeting with advisors, and painting pumpkins and watching Hocus Pocus. The bonds between the students and staff has been amazing and it's great to watch the LLC grow.

The residents continue to hang out in the lounge and do their homework together. A bunch of them just had their first practical and it was great to see them all working together and providing support for one another. Classes have gotten a little more challenging, but they continue to ask questions and seek help if they need it. 

The Nursing LLC Class is very exited for November! We all just signed up for Make A Difference Day to help clean up the community and Milwaukee's neighborhoods. They continue to challenge themselves and have some healthy competition during their Team Challenge Competition for class. Within this competition they get various points for meeting with their advisor of Peer Mentor, attending an event and volunteering, and excelling in their courses and throughout school. The team with the most points at the end of the semester get a huge Pizza party and prizes with the LLC staff! They all enjoy this challenge and continue to go above and beyond! 

With all these amazing things happening throughout the LLC we continue to look forward and watch the LLC grow even more. The students continue to bond and excel within everything they're doing. They make us so proud and we can't wait to see what else they have to offer.

With Winter approaching, the LLC is ready to stay warm and give back to others less fortunate than us. We can't believe its already been over two months since we started school  and were ready to take down and tackle these Winter months!

Your Health Professions Mentor, Alexa Hess
