“I really enjoyed living in LEAD over the last few years! It was a great place to live with people you know. There are also really fun events in LEAD. I would keep living here if I didn’t have to graduate.”
Twyla Tucker

“I absolutely love living in LEAD! It is really nice that I get to live with all of the friends that I made in freshmen year. And the Fountains is such an amazing place to live. The events that LEAD puts on help to strengthen the sense of community that is unique to Honors.”

“I love living in the LEAD community because of the friendly and welcoming environment. We are a very close group of like-minded individuals who have a ton of fun!”

“LEAD offers the opportunity to remain engaged with Honors while having an amazing time. Personally if I had the chance to live somewhere else I wouldn’t take it. LEAD is my home and I’ll never forget my time.”
