"The thing I like best about living in the Conservation, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental Recreation are the people. They are all great people who share a love for the outdoors." —Dan. D., Terre Haute, Ind., Political Science and Economics
"I would recommend the Conservation, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental Recreation to new students because I have never met a better group of people to spend my freshman year living with. I came in with no conservation, outdoor recreation, and environmental recreation experience and have already learned and experienced so much! Choosing to be a part of the OA LLC was one of the greatest decisions I've made at IU so far." —Sophie M., Wilmette, Ill., Cognitive Science
