Being a member of the Cormier Honors College has been one of the greatest experiences of my life thus far.  One of the pillars of the Cormier Honors College is Community.  A community is defined as “all the people living in an area or a group or groups of people who share common interests.” For me, being a part of the Cormier Honors College at Longwood University means more than just getting to live in Wheeler Hall and getting to take different classes. The Cormier Honors College has become my family, allowing me to form friendships that will last me a lifetime.  The Honors Community is my support system, constantly encouraging to pursue my goals and make my dreams a reality.

Being part of the Cormier Honors College community has helped me become a part of other communities as well.  Since being in the Cormier Honors College, I have become the treasurer of Honors Student Association, the director of The A Capella group Pitch Perfect, a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, a member of Sigma Alpha Pi, a member of Phi Sigma Phi and a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma.  Without the community of the Cormier Honors College, I would not feel nearly as comfortable on campus as I do.  So many people in. the Cormier Honors College have been so nice to me, upperclassmen included.  Everyone I see always makes me feel welcomed and wanted. This connection between all of the members are Cormier Honors College creates this community of intellectual leaders that is unlike any other group I have been involved in.  My new family, Cormier Honors College, has helped to make Longwood University my home.
