Groundbreaking for Expansion of Honors Living-Learning Community


JONESBORO, Aug. 22 -- Arkansas State University held a groundbreaking ceremony today for the expansion of the Honors Living-Learning Community (HLLC).

The HLLC is a partnership between the Honors College (Academic Affairs) and Residence Life (Student Affairs).  Arkansas State University is adding a fourth HLLC residence hall, which will have 102 additional beds.  Currently there are three residence hall buildings with a total of 219 beds for freshmen and upperclass Honors students.  The new building is needed because the population of Honors students has grown rapidly since the HLLC opened in Fall 2009.

The groundbreaking ceremony included remarks from Dr. Tim Hudson, Chancellor; Dr. Rick Stripling, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs; Rebecca Oliver, Director of the Honors College; Devin Reed, junior in Honors; and Lindsay Mull, freshman in Honors.

At the conclusion of the ceremonial shoveling, those attending an informal reception in the HLLC Courtyard enjoyed complimentary Andy’s Frozen Custard.  Honors students also gave tours of the current residence hall rooms in the HLLC.
