Joining the Health and Medicine Living Learning Community is the BEST decision of my life (not sorry for the pun)! Not only do you get to live in B.E.S.T (Busch Engineering Science and Technology) hall, you get to live with a diverse group of people who also have the same career goals as you. We became a family ever since the first day and we are each other’s biggest support group. This being the fourth week of classes, I honestly can say I don’t know what I would do without them by my side. Being in this community means having some of the same classes with each other such as expository writing, health and medicine FIG (First-year Interest Group), biology and sometimes chemistry if you’re up for the challenge. We have mentors who are in their second or third years of the LLC who guide us through this arduous, yet fun journey to medical school. There are a few on each floor who you can go to anytime you have a question or problem, and they are more than happy to help. Other than having the same classes, mentors and mandatory meetings we have to go to, we de-stress and bond together Friday and Saturday nights by staying up late in the lounge watching movies or binge-watching Greys Anatomy. Who says pre-med students can’t have some fun?
