Episode 103: First Year Programs and the Limo Code

In this episode, we sit down (finally in our real studio!) with Leo Lachut ’89, Director of Academic Support and Assistant Director of First Year Programs and Learning Communities. A first-generation college student himself, Leo talks about how, while student needs have remained roughly the same since his undergraduate days, the resources to help them succeed have vastly expanded.

But there’s another side to Leo Lachut: a limousine-driving side. Moonlighting as a limo driver since he was in graduate school, Leo tells us about the ‘Limo Code,’ and the time he almost found himself on a Broadway stage by accident.

Tom and Julie round out this episode by reminding people not to spell “UConn” in all capital letters, in hopes of furthering a surprisingly intense online debate.
