Rosie Ortiona refers to Hofstra University Honors College as her“second home.”“Honors College is one of the best niche communities I have foundin the larger community of Hofstra,” Rosie said. “I know anytime Ineed to, I can go to the second oor of the Axinn Library and chatwith [Honors College] Dean [Warren] Frisina, [Senior Associate]Dean [Neil] Donahue and everyone else in the ofce,” said Rosie.“You don’t need a specic question; you can go in just for adviceand moral support.”As a member of LEAP (Legal Education Accelerated Program), Rosieis simultaneously completing her senior undergraduate year andher rst year at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at HofstraUniversity. She says that the organizational and critical thinkingskills she developed in the Honors College Culture & Expressioncourse gave her the condence to take on the goal of earning abachelor’s degree and a law degree in just six years.“It [Culture & Expression] opened my mind to certain ideas thatreverberated in different classes,” said Rosie. “It affected how fast Iget through books, how I approach certain texts … It denitely setthe tone for the rest of my undergraduate career.”
