Boyan Cox tries to get the most out of her college experience and is committed to helping others do the same. The sophomore education major and part-time kettlebell instructor just returned from Colorado, where she was a delegate at the National Association for College and University Residence Halls Conference. Now she’s living on campus as a student house counselor for the summer Education Opportunities Program (EOP), and this fall she will be a resident assistant (RA) in Randall Hall. “I am passionate about Residence Life,” said Cox. She’d better be. When the EOP program concludes in August, this fitness buff will have a day’s rest before starting RA training.

About 1,100 first-year students attended the two-day sessions, where they met other new students, faculty and staff members, registered for fall classes and learned about campus life and college resources.
