Big Lopes, Lil’ Lopes

Big Lope, Lil Lope provides college students with opportunities to spend time together and grow academically, professionally, and socially. By spending time with each other and helping everyone have a successful year, we create a family-like atmosphere where we can feel comfortable with one another. This environment creates a safe space that students can use to ask for homework help, work through roommate conflicts, talk about personal struggles, or share fun details about a great week. While we always have a really fun time together, our main purpose is to build community within Early Childhood Education. There are many tasks that must be done to be successful in the education major and Big Lope, Lil Lope is here to help everyone be successful and take away some of those stresses.
