Capstone project impacts Honors Living Learning Community

April 08, 2015
A University of Maine graduate, Ms. Cappuccio came to Merrimack College to pursue a Master of Education in Higher Education after serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA and the civic engagement coordinator at Southern Maine Community College.

As a Fellow in the Higher Education Fellowship program at Merrimack, Ms. Cappuccio helped to design the Honors House, a living learning community (LLC) for Merrimack’s honors program students.

In order to better understand the benefits of LLCs and the needs of our students, Ms. Cappuccio designed her capstone project in a way that allowed her to research LLCs and how they link student learning with co-curricular activities. In conjunction with academic research, Ms. Cappuccio also conducted a needs assessment of Merrimack College’s current honors students which targeted content areas such as academic programming, community building, social programming, and honors mentoring.

In addition to this work, Ms. Cappuccio also sat in on the Conduct Board at Merrimack College, volunteered as the Center for Leadership and Engagement Intern at Middlesex Community College, and served as a Graduate Associate for the National Association of Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA).
