Honors Living Learning Floor

 

 Living-Learning has been part of Edinboro University for over a decade, providing students with opportunities to interact with faculty and peers outside of the classroom in a living environment and experiences that promote student success. Choosing to become part of a living-learning community provides an opportunity for students to live on the same floor with others who share the same major, field of study, or interest area. Participants interact with faculty and staff outside of the classroom through programs, activities, and events. Residents are able to gain assistance and ideas from peers who share their strong commitment to the living-learning experience. National research has shown that living-learning programs provide students the following benefits:

· Dialogue with peers about academic and social issues.

· Have a mentoring relationship with a faculty member.

· Find their residence hall climates to be academically and socially supportive.

· Experience a smooth transition to college.

· Utilize critical thinking skills.

· Be more committed to civic issues and community service.

Scholar-in-Residence

Each living-learning floor has at least one Scholar-in-Residence (SIR). The scholar is a student staff member who is the link between the floor and the honor’s director. The scholar works with the residents to ensure that an adequate level of support and programming is available on the floor. Scholars are selected based upon their academic performance and knowledge of and participation in the sponsoring program or department, providing the best-of-the-best in support staff.

This years SIR is a second year Business Administration major named Alexis. She is part of Edinboro's Fighting Scots Women's Soccer Team and a very active member of the Dr. Robert C. Weber Honors Program. Alexis certainly knows how to handle a heavy schedule.

 

Floor Benefits

The Dr. Robert C. Weber Honors Floor provides an avenue for high-achieving students in all majors to dialogue and benefit from each other’s strengths and various curriculums. This living-learning community is located on the third floor in Earp Hall and provides immediate access to the Honors Department office, classroom, study lounge, library and computer lab, all of which are located in Earp Hall. It would be an honor to have you join our group.
