COBE Connection wins the 2nd Annual LLC Cup!

This annual event is so much fun. Last year, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences Living Learning Community, the Health Professions Collaborative, won. But this year, The College of Business and Economics set out to defeat! And boy, did they dominate! 

This year's 2nd Annual LLC Cup was again held in AU's Recreation Center where we used the indoor track, the gym courts and the rock wall. Students and advisors from all living learning communities bonded together, used teamwork, and encouraged each other while participating in the last big LLC event of the academic year.  

Here are some pictures from our day:

COBE Connections advisor and faculty member, Professor Terry Rumker, along with College of Education's advisor and faculty member, Susan Stewart, addressing the teams of students. 

Who's in for some competition???


This was an awesome activity and also worked on communication with each other. 

These specific teamwork events are so much fun!!

And lastly we have a team picture. What a great event. 

Another great event in the books for AU Living Learning Communities! We already have dozens and dozens of incoming students for this fall semester ready to join our next LLC groups! AND, we have LLC alumni students from years' past who keep in touch with faculty and advisors who expressed their gratitude for an organization such as this. What an outstanding organization to be a part of, and to encourage and support the growth of students in their collegiate experience.

SAVE THE DATE: 2nd Annual LLC Cup

It's that time of year again! It's time for the 2nd Annual LLC Cup! And boy, it's a lot of fun. Last year's LLC Cup was featured {here} and the Health Professions LLC group won in its inaugural year. 

But save the date! All current LLC students can join in the festivities and play, (playfully?) compete, eat and drink, and laugh with friends... all for the bragging rights and deserving boastfulness of the infamous LLC golden cup. A prized possession. 

MARCH 20TH, 2016
Meet on the walking track

Pizza and drinks will be provided before the awards ceremony.

Wear your team colors:
Business- Gray
Health professions- White
Education- Purple
Arts and Sciences-  Black

And just to add to the competition... last year some of the faculty advisors participated too! 

How fun that faculty and students can join together for fun activities! So SAVE THE DATE and join in the fun!

LLC Learns from Expert Cardiologist and Nurse Practitioner

Ashland University students have numerous opportunities to explore and learn inside and outside of the classroom. However last week, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences Living Learning Community called the "Health Professions Collaborative", had a unique monthly meeting where a local cardiologist and nurse practitioner came to share information with over dozen students about the field. 

(Links embedded within text)

Last Thursday, February 11, Living Learning Community members and alumni were in attendance to hear Dr. William Polinski, cardiologist from Wooster, Ohio, discuss cardiac concerns for athletes and other cardiac disorders. 

Dr. Polinski was accompanied by nurse practitioner, Dr. Lisa Young, who teaches advanced simulation and complex medical surgical nursing in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Ashland University. Following the presentation there was a Q & A session for the students. Then of course, attendees were treated to snacks and door prizes which is a common theme at our monthly meetings. 

The event was planned by Dr. Karen Estridge, Advisor of the CONHS Living Learning Community. 

He did a wonderful job and focused discussions and learning toward sports and athletes too.
