Posted on 10/8/2019 9:07:31 AM

If you can’t find your faculty members in their office, they just may be at your residence hall! This fall semester, four professors are spending a portion of their office hours in four different living-learning communities to connect with their students in a whole new way. 

Dr. Elaine Little in her Living-Learning Center officeYou can catch Elaine Little in the Suites on Maple East, Dawn Smith-Sherwood in Wallwork Hall, Erin Conlin in Delaney Hall, and Colin Ashe in the Northern Suites.

Little is a Nursing and Allied Health professor who can usually be found in her Johnson Hall office. However, on Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. students can find her working in Suites on Maple East 101. After nursing students are done getting homework help from Little, they can enjoy one of the perks of Maple East’s Health and Wellness Living-Learning Community by heading to the building’s Nursing Resource Room. This study space is located in room 306, though the skeleton seen through the window might be a dead giveaway.

Within the quad, you can also find Erin Conlin, History professor for the Promising Scholars Living-Learning Community, in one of the first-floor offices of Delaney Hall. Conlin will be there every Friday from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.

On the other side of campus, you can catch Colin Ashe, Chemistry professor for the “In Our Element” chemistry Living-Learning Community, in Northern Suites 107. He really has gotten a taste of the Northern lifestyle, as he’s here every Wednesday from 1:10 to 2:40 p.m. for office hours, 7:00–8:30 p.m. for the Weekly Wednesday Wonders, and then 8:30–9:30 p.m. for office hours. Ashe says that “it’s been fun to meet with students outside of Weyandt Hall and to see them where they feel at home.”

Lastly, Dawn Smith-Sherwood, Spanish professor, has taken up residency in the south side office of Wallwork Hall G-2. One of her favorite parts of her new office? She has run into some past students and loved the opportunity to catch up with them. If you’d like to catch up with Smith-Sherwood, she will be in her Wallwork office every Wednesday 1:30–2:30 p.m.
