Illuminate students are also members of the Honors Program, which challenges us to consider new perspectives and step out of the box. I am always inspired by Illuminators’ commitment to their academic endeavors and their value for using their skills and knowledge for the benefit of the community and the world. – Cassandra Cyphers, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Illuminate

Begin quote I believe the Illuminate LLC will foster a passionate group of individuals who strive to challenge each other to become the best they can be. This will inspire students to become Changemakers in our community, and allow them to be immersed in an environment that fully supports their academic goals. A unique aspect of Illuminate is that it is one of the smaller LLCs. This will enable students to engage closely with their community, and create long-lasting connections with their peers and professors! – Jayden Yeoman, Facilitating Residential Assistant for Illuminate
