THE EASTERN PROGRESS - by Evan McMillan

Every academic department at Eastern has its own way of introducing freshmen to the rest of campus, and with the Golf Management Living Learning Community, the PGA golf management department is no exception.

The PGA Golf Management Living Learning Community was started during the 2007-08 school year as a business community. At the time, the floor primarily consisted of golf management majors and minors. Eddie Renio, the program coordinator of the PGA golf management at the time, said he originally came from a school with a GM
Community and noticed the students wanted the LLC to be golf management rather than business.

The LLC is available to all incoming freshmen and returning sophomores. Tyler Caviness, current program coordinator of PGA golf management, said students are not required to live on the floor, but he strongly encourages incoming freshman to request the LLC.

"We believe that it is highly beneficial to incoming students because it gives them a chance to get to know their classmates ,and we feel it helps new students ease into the college experience because they are living with other
students in a similar situation," Caviness said.
